Lynn Reeves AKA Nova Christeen
No moon Feeling lost No kids Asking for dinner No husband Late or drunk Family forever they say Families break up You know The fish swim Alone in their bowls Looking at me for food Excitedly My heart beats But it's shattered The crickets go crickety Crick no cicadas tune in tonight It's sad, dark and lonely times The cricket goes silent As my cigarette ends.
