Discount Fireworks

by

B.K. Faulk

 

Remember when we made out

In the parking lot of the movie theater,

And people saw us, but we didn't care,

And we kissed anyway?

 

We sat at Waffle House

While a dirty old OSU professor

Told us unnecessary things

About his Russian girlfriend.

We were quiet for a whole minute

After he left.

Then we laughed for a whole minute

After that.

 

I still tell stories about us,

Even though we've stopped talking.

And even though it hurts,

I smile anyway

To keep the tears at bay.

 

Our love was like discount fireworks - 

A few sparks

And a loud boom

Every once in a while,

When we were lucky,

Before it fizzled out.
