Julie Kane.
"Moonrise on the Cane River."

 

The moon is a surprised white face over the darkening river

Even before a pair of blue-grey wings swoops down

Between the O of its mouth and the O of a surfacing fish,

And the phone rings, and it's you in Baton Rouge

Grilling a silver catfish and staring at the moon.
