Aquarian Moon

I dreamt that my elementary school crush
Sat next to me at a banquet.
He still thought I was invisible until
I started laughing. I grew
Miraculously luminous over a glass of wine,
Leaning forward and cracking jokes
Like Audrey Hepburn post-Paris in Sabrina.
Resting my elbows on a silk blue tablecloth
In my embodiment, I noticed him
Noticing me and I smiled for all the things I
Always wanted and then
Didn’t want any more
After all.

Always seriously joking and rambunctiously soft-spoken.
