When first you came
you were formed from jade
inlaid with topaz

firestones beneath swift water

you communicated through dreams
and our hearts/minds/spirits
interwove frokm silken strands
steel cable

when first I touched you
my skin fused with yours

molecules interlocked
as though finding magnetic opposites

greedy for you
I starved
whenever parted from you

all down the years
I would give you my best day
without question/
never asked any return

so it hurts
to be referred to as
'those people'

silver service has accrued
a slight tarnish
