The most perfect afternoon of ever

October 7, 2014

My friend and I lay on a blanket
on the grass
backs pressed into the ground– actually horizontal!–
like we weren’t mothers like
we were still women who could tangle with gravity and win
like we didn’t have groceries and kids and responsibilities,
like we had nothing to do at all besides be
supine for a glorious stolen hour
while the kids rumbled
and we talked about all the things and the whole time
we were looking up at
