Drabble: Moonwalk


The white glow of the moon seems to add to the cold of the already-chilly evening. Branches cast silver-edged shadows where the ground is dark enough for the moon’s light to show, the spaces between and around corners from the harsh yellow sodium pools of the street lights. A high and thin layer of clouds show an aura around the moon, a perfect circle surprisingly sharp and as big as almost the entire sky. White ring and white dot against black sky present the inverse of a cartoon eye.

You wink at the moon. It doesn’t wink back.
