Verge of a Dream: without a promise

There is a pearly glow
On the fender fin.
You say you will fall in
love with me,
I wonder
I think the equinox
is neither there or here.
You might wish to be
alone or
alone with me,
it’s never sure.

In a velvet
I wonder as
the actors kiss
then part
if they look
into the dark
for two,
new in love,
and wish for
that too,
in their hearts.

Then you in
the gray screen
lifted from
A ring or
me that wind
about your finger
which one it is
I don’t seem to mind.
Held, as I am
the rock, bearing
the sword until
you ride
a curve in space
to another whose
hope for your
true love,
ends in
he’ll find was
a promise
