an Orbison word

the ten best of Orbison play,
and I am a young man again,
but it is not yesterday,
it is now,
and I am drunk on the splendor
of you, afraid
that it might be just
a dream, even though
you have assured me in no uncertain terms,
that this is real,
that you don't do this every day,
and that I had better
"stop doubting me, buddy,"
and "buddy" being such an
Orbison word,
I quickly agree.

June 2, 2009, for the wifey.
