See This?

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

See This Ring?

It doesn’t matter what It cost —

Eye bought It for My Birthday

Years and Years ago

to signify my “attachment”

to The Little Man

Eye say Eye have been in love with

for nearly three decades.

See This Diamond?

It houses a pie-shaped Inclusion

to signify Its Uniqueness

and Eye wear it upon my left ring finger

Now and Then

to signify my endless heart’s time.
