Were you to return
in the midnight
of my dreams,
I would meet you bare
beneath my black dress.
Red lipstick.
Hair tumbling.
Your ring reseated
third finger down.
We would make love
shoeless on cool marble floors,
lie in the rain as thunder
songed in our heads
of days beneath
scorched sunlight;
recall choruses 
of forever words
spoken, forgotten,
when we danced.
