Overnight Glass

overnight glass
With you I want it
to be like that first time,

an eye to eye encounter,
those raven eyelashes fluttering,

our poker faces concealing those
feelings of stargazing at night

in plain sight of trailing lights
shooting by in silver lines

across the endless desert of
the sky

yet never
again

and now I sip and taste the wine
that’s flattened

and contemplate
in tatters

the ways that I can bring that
sweetness back

so I can take you in
these arms

like I should have
when I had the chance.
