I Think You Have Beautiful Eyes

by James Babbs

I told her
and she smiled at me
then she kissed me
softly on the lips
I felt her body shift
there were other things
I wanted to say
but when I thought about them
they just sounded dumb
we need more wine
I said
and I held my empty glass
up toward the light
are you trying to get me drunk
she asked
of course I said
and it made her laugh
she felt warm next to me
I leaned in and gave her
a long slow kiss
my head felt strange
for a moment
I thought I was floating
it must’ve been the wine
