I enter your room . . .

Knowing (only)

Who they say

You are from

“outside—the inner circle”

books stacked (deliberately) on

the table. . . telling tales

you know so well . . . your lips

a stained glass prism

speak to me . . . I join

the tender throb of history

in your voice: I walk through it

(I become it)

You grow

The American I did not know myself to be

Right there

In your voice
