This bracelet is my gift to you,

A beacon of my life that lives through me and lives through you.

Hold at it when it meanders or coils into hieroglyphic signs

On your wrist. Don’t let it flee down the swales,

Transient ways opened by fret, or percolating raid of aggravations.

Proclaim it ex cathedra your belonging and master it

As you have mastered me.
