Haiku for Pris

by Jean Jones


Pris was a "basic pleasure model" Nexus-6 replicant who was part of an escaped group of replicants led by her lover, Roy Batty. The group's goal was to demand longer lifespans from their manufacturer, the Tyrell Corporation.

I have realized
how much I really need you
I need you near me

Being next to you
I know how much I miss you
without you near me

What do I need most?
your mouth, my mouth, connected
You and I, linked-
