What I’m writhing upon,
and even writing about,
is the stuff in the box.

Neatly penned by perimeter,
bold straight strokes,
bulbous and plain.

How about what’s outside?
You may and should inquire
in due time.

I’d say I’d never trade
any moment where you were, and when.

I lived and continue to be entangled simply
and merely for you.
