Morning Moon

(Pre-Script: This poem best read as the song, "Closer" by Joshua Radin, #30 on the playlist, plays in the background. Go down to the playlist, click on that song, then come back and resume reading. I'll wait...)(...still waiting...)

I did not expect to see the moon this morning
as I got in the car and started driving, 7am
the sky was lightening, still in between asleep and awake
but when I looked up it was hanging there,
full and huge like a soap bubble rising
not 3 feet above the McDonald's by the car wash.
