After I gave you frozen agua, so that each tear
of longing could melt into your thirst,
drop by drop, as she watched, wondering
why that woman was so nice to you
and how long had you been drinking?

There is only
platonic love between us, as we gaze
at each other,
steady and clear,
our needs forever unmet.

She can have you every day.
Your socks, your hunger.
I'll take your thirst with me
and drink from those wide eyes
that look at me always, letting go.

Go ahead.
Te amo.

-Judith Pordon
