her ceiling’s faces
consort against her.This deaf woman,wired well,listens whilea young manclaws the banister
stumbles tohis own dark door.Woman
naked beneathyour housecoat
mothermy city.Make way
weave with me
beneath your ripplingsheets
roaring with each snortof crisp airuntil dusk
at day’s end.

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
