September 1: Night out in Portland

My husband and I came down to Portland today to walk around the Old Port and have dinner at Petite Jacqueline, a bistro on Longfellow Square to which we'd been given a gift certificate. As we walked to the restaurant this evening past a gas station, a 7-11 with sketchy characters smoking outside, a Rite Aid drugstore outside of which a man was yelling things to passers-by, etc., we could see the moon rising, hovering over the dirty street and the lights of cars and restaurants and traffic signals, distant but somehow outshining them all.

Full moon shines
just as brightly
over the 7-11.
