                        Biology Lesson

Remember that summer
the night heavy with moths
stumbling against invisible glass?
 
On fragile wicker chairs
we sat and creaked,
argued about those wars in Ancient Rome
and whether my eyes were brown
or black like a witch
 
enchantment
the better to explain
your hand’s sigh upon my breast
 
And as your lips
windsoft, wondering
brushed cheek and eyes
I watched a moth
hungry for the light,
and sympathized.
