VI.

in this weather………..…-bares your name

its small teeth…….confess they will never

.

be as sexually precocious……..…as in this

moment confess-……..…-as in this theater

.

confess a fear maybe…….you would enjoy

the sensation of nylon socks and sandals

.

staringat the hands on a strange pocket

-watch your face bearing some odd regret

.

VIII.

sunday-……….…….…….-the only adjective

for asking to lay deathly by you…..-face to

.

sun.……ears of grass and the grain in the

photos of your childhood..…..…-these are

.

sunday-….…-warm eyed foehn indifferent

when talk of bluing meant-…….-I hunger

.

sat God crying and..…….blue for company

wind gives lift to glass-on days like this

.

XIII...………………….unison

in hot flowers of zinc-………………..-wilts

the watchmakers hands yellow-….-hands

.

the country..-claimed only half an identity

two persons play chess-……-only one face

.

of the two is very visible………-swallowing

eyes a dancing horseman-.….-why do you

.

want his win like your own-……-we knew

we could love any well………..like our own

.

VII

we are things in parsing..….-age fantasia

and………….…..-here is not room for two

.

and hear a low and driving-..…..-whinny

from a depth of dark……………..and chase

.

something sallow-…….-forbidden undeal

ing from where we have come….diffident

.

when wakeless rasping mountain ranges

in fingertips over linen what day is today

.

XIII...…………………..unison

leavened black bread from the oven….-in

idyll placed on the sill to cool and……cut

.

clean your fragrant steam in black wisps

whipped from a black vascular….trapped

.

air before your skin..hardened-&-on that

sill the world will climb in-..-to each like

.

dream in idyll sun will climb glass-and

creep steady in to each like dream…..-like
