I know you no longer.
I remember

your supple shadow
as tall

but your hair
has become dark and your

eyes have small diamonds in
their depths. 

Your cool breath
ices my cheek, spreads a

chill under my fur. Some unknown spur
goads you

into words on the rise
even your touch has reclined

to a barely-wise sense.  All I feel
now is your indifference.
