the terrible loneliness after seeing

starsxmas

how love is bright

the unknown marquee

some ferris wheel of emotional light, lit higher, on high

pinwheeling against the moon’s sheen on water

& you’re walking there coupled yet alone

because  you saw something for the first time

light in the eye of another

they’ll all say shut up, silly

count your lucky stars

but it was just too cold knowing he was out there

& suddenly you were more alone

more alone more alone more alone

that when your husband took your arm

all you wanted was his arm, the way your hips would bump

casually laughing along the wharf

warm under the field of heaven
