Never Seen

What was your role
on that summer night

when the blanket
on the lawn
was drenched
to the last thread
in honeysuckle

and we looked up
at a full moon
and didn’t see you

so locked
in the moment
and staring away
from Earth

turning a blind eye
on a stolen kiss

the hidden chaperone

looking away

for us.
