Jackpot

i hit my jackpot..167 points my
all-time high on Words With Friends
screaming  in the background
our resident hawk soars over
her eucalyptus nest home
we’re all here on this suburban Los Angeles
California Saturday afternoon
our empty bank account testifying to
a week of passion in Italy
should i care about the numbers
when we’re still flying
high on art in Firenze and
cappuccinos to live and buzz by?
in New York after customs
we  carried on our luggage overstuffed  with
a new understanding of a million
different ways SHE loves us
