Strolling Up

Fifth Avenue,

we were red-lighted

to a pause

that you used

to give me

a quick kiss.

"What?"

I said, "what was that

about?"

Looking

at some blue companion

in the sky,

you replied,

"I'll never tell!"

- And because you

never did,

that moment's warmth

is still on my lips.
