That Sweet Moon Language

Admit something: Everyone you see,
you say to them, "Love me."

Of course you do not say this out loud;
otherwise someone would call the cops.

Still, though, think about this,
this great pull in us to connect.

Why not become the one who lives
with a full moon in each eye,
that is always saying,
with that sweet moon language,
what every other eye in this world
is dying to hear?
