Cue or being cued?

I shiver (longing)
for a sign
for your cue
for bat of eyelash
for glimpse of teeth
for parse of lips
for ice to break.

I daisy-petal,
picking hope and no,
I truth or dare before
you leave, explode
and cue:
“Please marry me”

  1. I love the way you built up the anticipation, Björn, and I especially like the effects of the lines:
    ‘…for parse of lips
    for ice to break.

    I daisy-petal,
    picking hope…’

    and that final explosion of the proposal!:

  2. The nervousness in your longing ‘for ice to break’ travels all the way through the quadrille and if this is in any way real I hope for a happy outcome :o)

I love your feedback
