5 A.M. Moon Over Mt. Herman

5a.m Moon Over Mt. Herman
I find Mt. Herman at 5am
in a shining blue before dawn,
the moon full above it.
With a cross of light shining out,
it reminds me of the gold monstrance
with the Eucharist inside,
pale, wafer thin moon.
I brew coffee, my tiny grave in a cup
with its hint of resurrection.
When I look again, only the top
of the moon is visible
like the crown of a fat, luminescent
bald man playing peek-a-boo.
