Once In a Lifetime
She un-folded the lawn chair,
Placed it on the flat surface
Of her driveway.
The chair's rusted aluminum squeaked
As she lowered herself onto it,
Discovering a comfort
Expressed in the simple context of:
I opened two beers,
Handed one to her.
We took a few sips,
Then looked at the moon.
It was glinting bright enough
To where its glow touched
The horizon coated with city lights.
Illuminated like a stagnant sunrise.
'That's a Super Moon.' I said. 'It's a once in a lifetime moment
To see the moon this way.'
Her feet angled pigeon toed
As she stood.
Next to her.
Using a feather-like-touch
She rested her head
On my shoulder.
Massaged my neck,
As she commented:
'Let's comprise our whole lives
'This what? ' I questioned.
She looked at me
Her teeth shimmered in the moonlight.
'Once in a lifetime moments.'
