Unrequited

An invitation
to a clandestine
dinner at a restaurant
of his choice.
It is out of the way,
off the tourist beaten track,
quietly discrete where
intimate couples often meet.

He did not suggest it should lead
to anything more than
good food and pleasant
conversation but, as I watch
him sip wine, break the bread
roll and take the first buttery bite,
I find myself hoping.

Sommelier

I don't take. I offer,
and if you want me

to grasp, I need to know
that your politeness

over the salad course,
and the soup (which we both thought

too salty) was a kind of semaphore
flagging me that I should

invite you back
to my place or invite

myself to yours.
Please let me know more clearly

because I want to properly
chill the right wine.

You're not lost
because
you were never found
and now
it's too late
to prove your
existence.

Sometimes I sit and mourn
a dozen or so lovers of the lost art form,
and I won't weep for wasted hours, anymore
spend time safekeeping, poems nor lovers
nor bother with "deep-sworn" vows to meter
which I've no intention of keeping

Night flight

Snow-bound city,
night bright with reflections
yet I never saw your face
next to me on the crowded
shuttle, our conversation small,
mundane but your deep voice
still seduces.

Hotel rooms scarce, you offer
yours and I wanted to, with
all the implications in that honey.

In the anonymous atmosphere
of international travel I could
have. We had scant seconds
while the bus paused but I
took your proffered hand....
and shook it instead of grasping
some casual sex.
