Poetry

Luminous

Written by Jacob Ibrag

Stretching his fingers past the Earth’s

atmosphere, he plucked the moon out of rotation

and presented his gift to the woman in the black dress.

‘Don’t waste that luminous sphere on me, give it to someone

that can reciprocate what you’re feeling.’ Taken back by her honesty,

he explained that emotion is a butterfly that never rests, forever

changing its trajectory and dissipating. ‘You’re the moon

I’ve been searching for, unique in what you are

and honest to what you’ll never be.’
