The Next Time

The
next time
you
smile
at
me, remember
that
Athena
once
smiled,
causing
moons
to shift,
and
stars
to
shimmy
and
shake
down
to green
grass.

Your smile
ain’t
fit
for
words,
and the
sun
just might
as
well mind
her
own business
if she
knows
what’s good
for
her.

The
next time,
I
just
may smile
back.

M.C. Davis
