the day after

He said I have eyes of sea-glass;

As if he found them by the river 

And placed them in a tumbler,

So that he could cleanse away the dirt-crusted dents,

Exposing the shiny green hidden

Only for him. 


I would gladly let him

Chip away at all my undesirable pieces,

If he would just keep looking at me.
