Did you hear it? I know you did. It wasn't the first time I was there.
But the second when I was torn from work, with my girlfriend's stubborn stare.
She was the photographer...but in reality she wasn't there at all.
I was looking right at you.
"sit up straight like the royalty you are. Stop slouching like you have something
to hide. Done. Breasts high like you actually picture them in your head. Done.Hands neatly
on your lap, there is where you hold the majestic cat. Done.
The part that is not evident to anyone but you...is that within arms reach
is a tattoo of me and you...in indelible ink, infused in the Mother.
Though only you and I can see it, it is there.
Whenever I go out there now, I sing.
"over the rainbow".
This gift I bring.
