Something opalescent and petal pink
It’s surface rounded and perfect like new skin;
When the sun shines through it high jacks light
Casts tremulous rainbows across the room
See those bubbles where your eye shines big?
There are sugar spun clouds floating within
Little girl, if I could I’d give you everything.
I have blown my heart into this moon-shaped thing
It’s strong enough it won’t burst from touch
That it might serve faithfully a lifetime long.
Something whole and singing with joy—
Just in case you need a vase to catch your tears.
