Dusk

There are deer out tonight
Grazing on grass
There’s a cat on the tracks
There’s music wafting over
From a rooftop bar
And the street lights just kicked on.

She’s happy to bursting;
Shaking with joy.
I was her once.
Holding tight to a feeling.
I just hope it’s love
And not just a slow climb
Up the first hill of a shaky old roller coaster.
