Robert Hooke and his friend John Aubrey
Stand together, watching the moon eclipse.
As the moon gradually turns dark
Aubrey vanishes too. He returns
With its reappearance.

Neither a long series of covert observations
Nor many ingenious experiments
Ever quite convince Hooke
That the Aubrey the moon brought back
Is the right Aubrey.
