(Text of Poem)

Your people ruined us once
because of something
they feared about me.
It took me years to start looking
for you again.
When I found you in another
dwelling place
it was such a relief.
You again, comforting, abiding.

But I guess there’s just a lot to fear,
because they ruined us again.
I know I won’t find you this time;
I can’t even bring myself to look.
But at least I’m already familiar
with the bittersweet futility
of being here without you.
