Social Isolation: Day 1

No alarm   but
            somehow
I woke up before dawn
            to see the moon and Mars
conjunction.
            The moon was waning,
crescent,          Mars a bright
            virus speeding away from or toward
its open mouth.           They hung low
            in the south east sky
                        just above the tree line.
I tried to take a picture
            but it flashed back only
     a bathroom window
                        in need of washing.
Still, I saw it.
            And the not yet risen sun
managed to make the sky—just a little—
            blue     and the moon a little gold.
