I wish
I could deliver
the night to you.
I don’t want you to miss
it.
Sparkling Venus.
Crescent moon
seeped in light.
Neighbors they,
early in the evening.
And then,
when they have gone out of view,
a full cast of stars
scattered deeply;
the Milky Way,
a banner of inconceivably beautiful reality—
ours—
stretched out
forever.
Go out.
Tip back your head,
spread your arms wide,
breathe,
get drunk.
