(just call my name)

For Tara

There are nights that hold
a handful of seconds,
brief like breathing out,
during which
the stars line up perfectly
to make monkey bars from you
to me. Know this:
If it ever lasts longer
than my eyes can stay open,
you can be sure,
I’ve been training for this voyage a long time.
I’m going to ride the sky to you.
