i have a six-leaf clover

have i told you that i have a six-leaf clover i have been meaning to give you?

i have a six-leaf clover i have been meaning to give you.

i found it over summer, pressed it in a book to dry,

and it currently resides on the top corner of a tall red shelf

in my living room.

though likely i simply only remember the clover at inopportune times,

it is also possible i always remember i have it as a gift for you

so that i know i will always have something i have not yet given you.

yes, of course that’s why,

if i always have one last thing to give you, there can never be an ending.

i have a six-leaf clover i have been meaning to give you,

just remind me never to.
