In an ethereal move, I applied to read an original work in homage to the moon at a poetry event recently.
A few weeks later, I found myself standing under the lunar-light of Luke Jerram, the multi-disciplinary artist who created Museum of the Moon.
According to his website, Jerram’s Moon measures seven metres in diameter and includes detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. Perhaps more importantly, the exhibit also serves as an overhang to any number of events, from concerts to lectures, parties to yoga classes, and symposia to poetry readings.
Masked, in a dark room, facing a great crowd and a formidable set of stage stairs, I spoke my truth under the moon.
It was beautiful.
