One Day at Stonehenge

pretty much like another
the August sun

and over there
a couple

making promises
beyond a prayer

and praying
for something fortuitous

in this once
in their lifetime

alignment of stones
and stars

and over there
the gods

and all
the rest

There’s a guy on the radio
singing about Sweet Destiny
as though she’s bringing
something more palatable
than the just desserts I see.

     Could be.
          Could be.

Soon enough, I guess
we’ll be at Destiny’s table.
Don’t rush me
toward that sweet reward.
