Tango #208

You've heard, of course,
the rumors about them
Mercury and Venus
the only planets with no encircling moons
it's because
they only have eyes for each other, those two
they wait patiently
for the sun to burn out
and release them from their separate orbits
counting the eons
until the tango they've been flirting with their eyes
from across the room
can at last be danced
