A Party on the Coast

When the doctors told her, she threw a party.
“A Night to Remember”, the invitation said.

We came in anything but black.
Drank champagne, ate salmon canap├ęs.

There was an almost famous band
and it was too loud to speak.

She smiled all night and watched
the dance floor throb.

Outside the window
the inky sea and then beyond.
