I saw the gift.
It was obvious.

He said Not many
can see it. He said
how could you

take such a thing
for granted.
It was there.

What was typically generally animated
was in this case animated with more

He said
You must have needed this too, someone
looking back at you?

Saying what they see?
Attempting to speak it?
A reflection of words of

a subject made
of flesh
of bones?

even according to the consensuses,
was in this case much more vigorous,

far more vital,
exceedingly more alive
than anyone living we had ever known.
