West End
Nameless,
her ceiling’s faces
 consort against her.This deaf woman,wired well,listens whilea young manclaws the banister
 — 
 stumbles tohis own dark door.Woman
 — 
Shulamite
 — 
 naked beneathyour housecoat
 — 
mothermy city.Make way
 — 
 weave with me
 — 
 beneath your ripplingsheets
 — 
fireover fire
 — 
glancingbreath
 —blaze’s ease— 
 roaring with each snortof crisp airuntil dusk 
at day’s end.
 Cows teach docilityand I left themin their fields
 — 
 what you teach isnot taught but engulfedand gulped.I want to reach
 but can’t touch.
 Harems of shadowslinger under your eyes.Whatdid I come hereto find? Youand your wombburst crazylike a star
