Ravenea Rivularis

Ravenea Rivularis,
The majestic stained-glass palm,
Stands crystalline and silent there
Between Midway and Guam.

And if you ever see it, please,
Then, do not say my name:
For I said yours to it once,
Things have never been the same —

With magic things, it’s best to look,
And then, to let them be —
Ravenea Rivularis, now,
Demarks both you
And me

    1. The actual species is native to Madagascar, and is endangered. I moved it to the Pacific, somewhere indefinite and remote, trying (fictionally) to protect it.
