Fancy Night


Two weeks, or really more,
Of deadlines hanging above us,
Stress mounting as due dates approach,
Sitting in class, we whispered
Fancy Night,
Marking the day in our minds,
A reward for hours, days, of effort.
And there’s more to do, of course;
More tests, more papers, more work.
But last night, we exclaimed over dresses,
Curled hair in the bedroom mirror,
And relished dinner and dessert
In a window seat downtown,
And it was wonderful.
