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:
'Ahhhhh...'

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.

I arose,
Anchored myself
Next to her.

Using a feather-like-touch
She rested her head
On my shoulder.

Her breath
Massaged my neck,
As she commented:
'Let's comprise our whole lives
Of this.'

'This what? ' I questioned.

She looked at me
And smiled.
Her teeth shimmered in the moonlight.

'Once in a lifetime moments.'
