Ladies’ Night Out

by: Scott Waters

Venus and the moon
went out last night
to set the sky on fire.

I saw them in the morning–
two laughing, dissipated,
revived old girls
tottering home across
a wide black street,
thumbing their genteel noses
at the disapproving dawn.

Scott Waters lives in Oakland, California.  He has published previously in The Blue Nib, The Pacific Review, Better Than Starbucks, and many other journals.  Scott’s first chapbook will be published by Selcouth Station, and his poem “I Could Be Anybody” has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize.
