The Moth

kissing a man
I noticed a moth trying
to reach the light above
my head.
it fluttered and
bounced from the mesh guard
keeping time with
my heart.
I wondered how the
moth knew the speed of
my heart.
I wondered if the man knew.

parting our lips
I closed my eyes pretending
to be concentrating on
the kiss
not on the moth
three feet above
my head.
he pulled back and I
looked into his eyes.
I heard the singe and
the silence
as the moth reached its goal.
