as if to speak
“bring something sweet”
for you to crush beneath your heel
as if in searching I could find
in every long draught
I can speak as
can you see –
but to breath is
full as I can be
Draught. n. The drawing of liquid into the mouth or down the throat; an act of drinking, a drink; the quantity of drink swallowed at one ‘pull’.
“I told you when I came I was a stranger”
“stand to face me beloved
and open out the grace of your eyes”
Everything is strange and I have not been able to believe what my life has become. I am exaltive and overwhelmed.
<Fecundity> and <Wantonness>
the city lifts you on a bicycle
and the wind! The wind on your rich lips!
our eyes alight with tempest
your visage now lost to the crowd
