The moon

One night, I woke to find myself on the moon

On the moon, I learnt

I learnt a lot

I learnt that the moon is really an endless beach

Off of which the world sinks, turning in dark waters

I learnt that birds were once made of leaves

And that we fell, leaf-first, from pieces of coal

I learnt how easy it is to get to the moon

All you have to do is

Lie naked on the bedroom floor

Hold a brick with both hands

Say, I am so happy to see you again

And wait

As the brick falls through your stomach

And then through the earth

Dragging you behind it
