diamond sutra

‘oh my dear precious one
 you with the diamond heart!’
you said
in my true-to-life dream
‘the flaw consists in loving me
 all too well’

ay me    heart of diamond
that upon shattering
makes a hundred more
and so am I freed of the flaw
in the gem in my breast
oh song most mine    if you wish
seek me at night in the heavens
what shards of light am I!
