Volcano, Moon (Poem 287)

Under the volcano  the moon 
twinkles in the blue  deep blue 
sky in the sea 
and we on our backs looking 
up into the volcano   the moon 
silvering my ears a tune  notes 
fly between us or above the 
radio loves profound silence 
the curtains  the floors  two 
stories to tell and show 
old woman below  
eyes us whitely  disapproval
knit tight in her buttonhole 
frown  we laugh  drowning 
in our own story
