Band of Two

song rolled forth like thunder
grins flashed lightning strikes
air guitar hitting every chord
strumming to the frantic beat
before taking a rock star leap
to crowdless sea of laughter
caught both as sweet refrain
tossing to ottoman for encore
followed by bedtime farewells

1 oz apart

one ounce apart can make all the difference
like a tequila sunrise and orange juice
a lobster sunburn or an island tan
this time it means I have to watch close
see who launches the running double hug
because the one ounce won’t feel different
when i catch them both running to my arms
