Glimmer

by DBLevin

we will fight for this
exude happiness
make roses glow when we kiss
we turned speeding cars
into empty bars
and we sat there and whispered
from our seats in the booth we saw everything
and our questions were meaningless

we ground to dust
what we found in your room
when your late-night lust
made bathrooms into ballrooms
your gown was ripped
but we sold it for two beers
and a pack of cigarettes
candles in the aftermath

aren’t we just brave and invincible
making our paths known
to the foolish souls
driving down lonely roads
and finding that at the end
there was no point
in going it alone
