When Stars Answer

When Stars Answer

Do you remember the first time I said it?
Calling the heavens to reply for you, we
looked up as a white streak burst across
the night. Falling, laughing, lips, tongues.

And you whispered, Does it hurt, I can't
say the words yet?
My mouth was on your
lovely ear -- No. And by the way, that was
not a star but a jagged chunk of flying rock.


And then you said it.

Oh my god, "cipriano"...(whatever!) the blend here of the romantic and touching.

Memory..."Do you remember. . ."

As if one could forget.
