POEM LI: “YOU SHOULD HAVE HEARD HER”

In that far-off kingdom,
there is a room full of Happy Woman Noises.

They are kept in lacquered boxes
and you tilt them over to hear,
like the child’s toy that moos or meows;
each one has a name.

One is called She Is Here, And Safe;
and another is Just Because We Like You, You’ve Won.

A third one sounds like rainwater tumbling down,
and it’s called He Will Never Hurt You Again.
