Fancy Night

IMG_8169.JPG

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.
