It’s Odd                                                           Carrie Bisciotti

When you think
Forever-ness is authentic
And find out
That this is indeed not the case
Because the stars reflected in our eyes,
We thought had confirmed things.
I reached over to you
On the cold lawn chair
Under your deck
On that night breathing
An otherworldly chill
And we kissed for the first time.
I was seventeen
And asked
Did that count?
Did the stars count it too?
Did you count the stars?
I lost track.
It’s odd
How that happens.
