Two Poems

09/14/06 from creative writing class senior year where we were given some sort of prompt which I think included certain words to use and a septet structure. I did two different poems

Winter Romance
As quickly as my heart did race
Hot blood receded from my face
My nose burned cold in winter air
As he led me to a patio chair
We watched others dance in deepest black
As he rubbed my hands, my breath came back
And above launched fireworks, over New York

Rocketship Skies
We watched the shuttle launch from apartment ten
After a frigid midnight dance lesson
Our noses touched on the love chair
He laid his hand upon my hair
“New York is great this time of year”
“But oh so black, you know that dear”
Quickly I shut my eyes to picture the shuttle in New York skies
