Pangolin Moon - an Octolune

It was World Pangolin Day this weekend.  I decided to compose an Octolune in celebration of these magnificent, unusual animals. I hope you like it!

Moon, pangolin moon,
burrowing in cumulus,
like a rolled bone
drenched in keratine,
you coil, cloud-cocooned,
a scaly sphere, lunar-bloom,
dangling diamond, pangolin moon.
