Party Game Questions

Anytime in history they said,
            sparking a montage
fit
                        for an indie movie

 
                                    of us:

 
the midnight viewing of A Hard Day’s Night
            that exploded
                        into a water balloon crusade
that made it all the way to 102nd st.

 
                        Melting a dozen candles
                                    on the coffee table
            to make our own unlightable Jabba-like mound.

 

The sliver of your profile as you turn
            to kiss me

            goodnight,

 
                                    backlit

only by the city nightlight that trickles in through cracks in curtains.

 
 

Yes

 
            that’s the one.
