Drive-thru Lightning

Elvis in the chapel
Drive up to window #2
I vaguely recall
We said our “I do’s”
20 years later
Drinking champagne to celebrate
How we caught lightning in a bottle
In that Vegas drive-thru
In our late night, love-drunk state

The prompt is “drive-thru lightning” from Maria Giesbrecht @theguelphpoet on Instagram. April 12, National Poetry Month 2022.
