That Night

We kissed so passionately in my 55 Chevy

I swear I felt the world move an inch.

It was me.  I was moved forever before Vietnam.

I have been moved so many times since, but

the world skipped that night from a skinny little boy

to a man and a gun and a submachine, and a bottle of beer.

One night in Tokyo or a million will never match

that night in my 55 Chevy.
