Get your day started off right with Cathy Wagner's new poem "The Moon Has a Head But No Body" on PoetryNow. The poem begins:

So why assume [she]
Is cold why not
Assume drunk
“Legless”
Can keep up pretty good though
With your car in the rural night
You are a passenger
Your left leg lolls and
Your friend reaches a hand
Across the emergency brake
Which points now at the base of
The gearstick shaft
And can point at its head
But nowhere else
Thus does not
“Speak”

Listen below for the poem and all of Cathy's insights. Enjoy!
