promise me

promise me
this day
you will remember

on the bike path
our evening shadows a mystery
look up!
not the sun nor the moon but suburban
giants
with lit faces
made wicked by your
imagination
or friendly
two wheels and a heart
beating faster
than your pedals
screaming with
joy

the fair was fun
last words on your lips
before succumbing to sleep
only to dream of ferris wheels
and girls in pigtails holding tight to their
prize chickens

promise me
this day
you will remember
