The Night the Sky Exploded

Can we open that night again
when the moon curved around its shadow
and the air hummed
as we watched the night explode
across the western sky

cascading chartreuse ribbons
as whistling energy erupted into coins
that melted behind the palm trees
and turned to sand along the beach
that waited in the horizon

and I could see the musk and sultry strands
of my life fizzle and turn to wishes
as the moon burned in the ocean
and you just smiled
as your hand held the sky against my cheek
