Kate put her hands on me,
then into her eye sockets.

She pulled each ball out
and held them tight,

“See the things I have seen,
See the wonder,
This is my present
to you”.

I held them close to me
for the month afterwards.
I suppose it was law of nature
that the soft warm sight
faded to dry and hollow –

But it is still the best of anyone,
I have ever had.
