  • You and I can never split –
    Our books have intermingled
    Like blood. We could no more
    Tear apart our collection than we could
    The body of our never-to-be-child.

    Who would take that vintage edition
    Of Sexton’s Transformations? What a battle
    That would be. Who bought which
    Book, anyway? First editions
    Given as gifts, out-of-print tomes
    Cradled home for each other, for ourselves,
    Because in this, as in our love,
    There is no division between us.
