Read Poem: Moonlight in Great Neck, by Sarah Rundqvist

I can’t stop

thinking about the moonlight

the night you kissed me

outside of that random bar

in Great Neck

you turned my whole world upside down

right way up

forbidden love has a way of tasting

sweeter than it should

I glanced up

at the clock

at the train station

knowing their arms

were already moving me

further away from you

until you were just gone

and you became

a distant memory

I sometimes recall

in the moonlight

I bought my first watch

a Bulova

like the one at that train station

where we became lovers

in love

every time with a kiss

picking me up

sending me off

and their arms are still taking me somewhere

my heart will send you a postcard once I get there

I hope we are both smiling

when we arrive
