Venus winked at me

about 5 o'clock it grew dark enough
for Venus to be visible in the night sky
smaller, but more constant than the moon
Venus's daytime side
reflecting light at Earth's nighttime side
I thought how tomorrow morning
Earth's daytime side will be a beacon in Venus's night
neither of us intended to be icons
it's just nice to know we are not alone

question: did you see? were you seen?
