moon in cuba

am i wrong
that i am here
and you are on the other side
of the universe?

when once, not so long ago,
we occupied almost the same exact place:
a cheap hotel room in western Mass,
smoking and drinking beer
and just
talking
talking
talking.

and then all the sex,
and then waking up with
you pressed close against me.

and i knew you were the one.

but then as we came around the moon,
just as we would end radio silence,
gravity flung you off into the silken
milky way, skimming planets,
spinning.

and now i focus my telescope for hours,
smoking and drinking beer
and just
staring
staring
staring.

and then i think i see you blinking
from some far flung fucking galaxy
that is definitely not the couch cushion next to me,
or pressed close against me,
or a cheap hotel in western Mass.

and i think
"what will i do now?"

and what will i do
when my eyes have seen the glory
of you in a cheap hotel room,
pressed close against me,
full of promise and hope,
with a waning moon in cuba?
