the wrapping

sleek, shiny, crisp,
nipped, tucked, patched,
ribboned on a corner
with an envelope attached

"happy birthday!" shouts the note
and "i love you" underlined
with a sweet yet cautious wish
all most cleverly signed and rhymed

then with fingers all a'trembling
tearing wrapping all apart
hoping that it's what you wished for
cause the wrapping's lost its art
