Coke Bottle Promises

Sandy grains
wash over and over
a discarded glass
leaving what is left
smooth as silk
to my fingertips
like a childhood 
thought over and over
once more
and as I look
out into the unyielding 
I recall your promise
I recall, over and over
like the waves splashing my
tan feet upon the sands
for you are overdue
to return to me
as I kiss my love note
to you
and toss the bottle once
into the dark blue abyss
my coke bottle
forever and only
I do stay
