Sleeping while the moon is full

Sleeping while the moon is full

the man at the counter says I look like his niece Alexandra
who doesn’t take no for an answer either
and looks at him with the same crinkled, confused face. 
she thinks it is impossibly foolish to 
attempt sleeping while the moon is full
and says we are not meant to lie down    easily when the night sky is so bright
that is when we should hit the road and drive all night

I smile

he smells like coffee and cinnamon rolls
his eyes are fierce with regret and mistakes,

and I wonder if he realizes what his own face looks like
