Ways of Keeping
I have kept my love for you
like an unloved dog,
chained up in the yard.  

You have kept your love for me
pressed between
pages of a well-loved book.
With a diamond, secretly, you have
etched me into a glass pane,
showing me my hiding place
with a cupped hand.

I could teach the world to woo
but teach me to keep as you do.
