WTSHWLTPWS:

Silk in the supermarket and mangoes in the fruit stands,
everywhere is a golden ripening and in the midst of all
is you, mouth agape with the hunger and the sun. “_________,”
you said to me, and I ___________ in reply,
as the emperor translating between us waved his hands,
pleasantly approving everything his people could ever want.
