\"\"

She’d tell you

which group of stars

 

were what

in the evening sky

 

as you stood outside

the church after

 

choir practice

of a Friday night

 

and her finger

would lift up

 

and point it all out

and her words

 

would drift

on the night air

 

like cigarette smoke

and you held onto

 

her every word

as she spoke

 

not for what she said

of night sky

 

or constellation of stars

but for the sound

 

of her voice

how it disturbed

 

the universe

made the deadly silence

 

less deadly

how they could bring

 

you in close to her

could embrace you

 

as she did

when no one

 

was looking

or you were both alone

 

some place standing

or sitting face to face

 

and that particular night

as she pointed up

 

and out

her other hand

 

grabbed yours

in the evening dark

 

and gave a squeeze

and hold

 

and then let go

how deep

 

that love was back then

is hard to figure

 

but love it was

you know.
