we stood

we stood
beneath polluted stars
a bronxite and her pair
sweet and juicy
palate cleansing

we stood and earth stood with us
still
waiting for our next big move
inviting us to break the spell
yet willing us to stay enchanted

we were
as though we were alone
no cars drove by with shining lights
no people stopping
looking for parking

we were
alone

as alone as two could be
standing together
within the hustling bustling city

autumnal chill no match to our heat
the burn felt beneath
the clothed and anxious bodies

too much light to see the stars but we still wished upon them

we were
and still are
together

we did not happen
we
are
happening
