“mountain goats” and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey

The smile on your face
could outshine the midday sun.
I looked away,
engrossed in my own thoughts.

We prayed and sat
and sat some more
and I stole glances
at your smile,
suspended a little at the corners
of your mouth
like maybe you wanted
to keep a secret
that couldn’t be kept,
so I smiled back.

For a moment…
for that brief moment…
I knew, too.
