That one dark sky
before mortgages
or loss

we sprawled out
on a picnic table
for the theater view

in this coming of age story

a satellite crawled
a red mite barely visible
in the gravel of stars

our eyes fixed on the screen
because it is about us

though we were cold
though we were supposedly sleeping

awake for the first time

the vertical
white column
of a galaxy
is ours.
