The Candle Club

it would be romantic
dinner for two
at some italian restaurant
under new york city
with candles
and roses
and a woman singing opera
badly
we would giggle
and eat spaghetti
like the lady and the tramp
with freckles of red
as our noses
bump
you would wear your red dress
and i would wear
forever black
so you could
shine
all the brighter
people would stare
because
they've never seen
anything
quite like us before
and they would say
look
look how
beautiful
they are
look how
in love
and maybe
they'd be right
but there's no spaghetti
no red dress
no bad opera
and there's no new york city
so i'll light a candle
and watch it
burn
