"...the fingernail Moon will be slightly above and to the left of Venus. "

She traced the edge of the fingernail moon

against the windowpane
imagined sitting on it, like a waif in a painting.

Below that edge of sharp light was a single teardrop
Venus blinking on and off
a clear blue beacon

All of this, on the edge of her vision
high above the horizon, past rooftops and power lines
only slightly higher than her fingertips.
