The perfect poise of grain Time enough to spill The flavor of a woman remembered on a train. Someone leans near And sees the salt your eyes have shed. You wait, longing to hear Words of reason, love or play To lash or lull you toward the hollow day. Silence kneads your fear Of crumbled star-ash sifting down Clouding the rooms here, here.
You shore up your heart to run. To stay. But no sign or design marks the narrow way.
When will my book be dispatched from your warehouse?
Then on your skin a breath caresses The salt your eyes have shed. It comes Unadorned Like a phrase Strong enough to cast a spell; It comes Unbidden, Like the turn of sun through hills Or stars in wheels of song. The jeweled feet of women dance the earth. Arousing it to spring. Shoulders broad as a road bend to share the weight of years. Profiles breach the distance and lean Toward an ordinary kiss. It comes naked into the world like a charm.
I am not seaworthy. Look how the fish mistake my hair for home. I had a life, like you. Let me be earth bound; star fixed Mixed with sun and smacking air. Give me the smile, the magic kiss To trick little boy death of my hand.
