Proposal

A delicate balance
must be achieved
for the one who
asks cannot do so
until he knows
the answer is yes.

She must
achieve
exactly the right balance
of not being eager
and letting him know
the answer is yes.

This miscommunication
will be gone only to begin
a life together
full of negotiations,
misunderstandings,
sorrow, joy,
and delight.
