Day 28 – Prose Poem

When in Spain

we'd bought cheese and wine, returned to the rented villa wondered at the light beyond
the ridge what town glowing so in darkness? a name, ached for a name, drank the wine
ate the cheese on the balcony wondered some more the brightening glow of the town
over there world's end above the gleaming surface of the too-cold-to-swim pool drank
more wine had some olives watched the town's glow grow fat climb the ridge
break into the sky entering curved like an orange moon indeed the moon breaking
the Spanish sky open taking on the night taking night by the dark bright destroyer
