He Wonders if He Wants to be in Love

The oddness of arousal –
pitched into espousals
of devotion! Unnerving notion.
Romance makes him unsteady. 

What’s the thing itself?
Does it always come with codas
that proclaim “or else”?
Strong – strange – bold – heady. 

He wonders if he wants to be in love.
He doesn’t know.
If love is all, as he’s been told,
is he not in the thing already?
