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-
