To Watch The Moon Rise

lying on the driveway

the concrete still under me

near the foldable chairs

the stars dots of yellow-white in a blue-purple-black sky

getting up and sitting in a chair

seeing the bright of a moon peeking through trees between houses

then smell of cigarette

and the bright red-orange tip floating in the air

sparks falling off onto the concrete


if i unfocus my eyes

i can only see the bright little glow

in the middle of blackness

then you walk away and tell me to come look

and a few minutes later she follows

her footsteps quiet and she brings

the camera and tries to get a good shot

of the bright marble radiating light

in the sky and i take a photo with my phone

and in it you can’t tell the difference

between the sun and this

moon of memories
