Date Night

skies lit with fire 
 as day descends
on patriotic duty 
 and domestic necessity

in zen-like state of melancholy
 deliberately manipulating
each item's place within
 somnambulatory sighs

the air smells of summer 
 while words tastes of coffee
as conflicting conversations turn 
 to soaring through the air

infant rodent lives are saved
 while giggling over medals
the day is done for both of them
 as night is yet to come
