Forever
larrylark

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