Forever
larrylark

We sat in the car.
 1
Her tests were clear.
 2
All those years thinking
 3
that life lasts forever,
 4
always seemed like a joke
 5
can be severed at a stroke.
 6
 
 
The supermarket stretched behind,
 7
cloaked in twilight.
 8
The same words we both spoke,
 9
conferred a thousand times before.
 10
 
 
“What would you like?”
 11
“I really don’t mind.”
 12
“Make a suggestion.”
 13
“Someday I might not.”
 14
“Champagne?”
 15
“Drain every single drop.”
 16
 
 
A mantra endlessly repeated,
 17
wears the mantle of sacred rites.
 18
The thought we might not share forever,
 19
in that moment verified.
