I’ll never forget
the moonlight that night
in Punta del Diablo,
silvering the edges
of New Year’s revelers
dancing past the smug prows
of beached fishing boats.
With whisky on rocks on
a splintered table,
I surrendered finally
to the mosquitos, raised
the white flag, let them have
at me. And you, so happy, so
unbitten, took my picture
with your phone.
