I gave you the pearls in bed
and you counted them all one by one
thread breaking sending them curving
across your skin beneath the cotton sheet
between your thighs.
And again one by one like prisoners
rounded up from the cold forest I
escort them back threatening each
with solitude should their careless display
have confused my gift with threat
of shallow desire.

I completely agree. It has 'essence' - and a great closing idea. I also like the 'cold forest' - very apt. The work is both simply expressed and very sophisticated, at the same time - IMO, a rare gift.
