John 12

No, really, take it–
it’s a gift. I tried to pick
out something more “you”.

Do you like the colors?
Or the way light jumps
around inside, playing tricks?

Press its curves deeper
into your palms, I
dare you! Can you

see where I carved
your initials underneath?
It reminded me of

the time we shared the
wind together. You
laughed at my jokes, remember?

Hold it still. Toy
with it, challenge it.
Isn’t it just beautiful?

Now let it go.
