Poetic Asides April 2011 Challenge Day 1 prompt "how I got here"

How I Got Here

He hands me my gift
The high-tech phone
I’ve been lusting after

“It has GPS,” he says,
“Now, you’ll never
Get lost ...”

A sadness steals
Over me
From where
I know not

My love, who reads me
Better than he does
the stars

Takes the phone
Touches the screen
Hands it back

My eyes fill
My heart bursts
He knows me so well

On the screen
An actual, functioning

“It has both true
And magnetic north,”
He tells me.

 I nod, knowing what’s next
And I say it too,
“But I’ll only ever need true.”
