Did you hear me when
I whispered your name to the dew
that had not yet formed? When I
stirred the clear water of a sticky stream
and found in the eddies and whirls
a language only I could read?

I carried you
like the single breath of an ancient
bird preserved in lithographic limestone,
like all the salt of the sea bound and floating.
