The Man in the Moon will come on Tuesday.

He will wear his grey hat and be travelling alone.

Take his luggage and his staypress suits — and,

Should he speak, converse about the ocean,

Women or the rush on the delivery wards.

I assume he’ll take the Penthouse Suite.

Do check the ice-tray in the minibar.

Make sure the curtains have been drawn,

And say I’m sorry that I could not stay —

It’s too long since we both worked the night.
