i noticed the sliver of a moon on my drive home tonight—low and crisp in the clear night sky.

many years ago, i knew a guy who described this waxing moon as a thin and yellowed fingernail clipping.

i forgot many things about this boy. but i remembered this.

i thought it was brilliant. and that he was brilliant. and so poetic. to describe something so lovely and traditionally romantic, so perfectly—by comparing it to something so unlovely and unromantic.

i always wished i’d thought of it myself.

years later, i ran into this boy and told him i remembered. i told him i thought of what he’d said about the moon.

but he said he didn’t remember ever saying that. he said he’d probably stolen it from a book he’d read…
