now i in the o pen place where i o eyes fail let touch be sight
let words thrust as fingers into the furry into silent breathing
and the gathering gloom, all tongues
and this dancing this twinning, this mind-licking, this feast
you bring me to your table oh and your open wet dish
succulent grape of your speaking.
and i come close and the hot hard headiness like inebriation
like your smell, your perspiring spread gaping pores your skin
near me and my metal heat
and our hands moving down to flesh and peeling away our
second skins our armours of daylight and longing long since
peeled and tossed into fire
and the standing, watching, waiting, untouching gaze, the holding
back until hunger bursts its vessels, honeys our mouths with all
its red, angry insatiable feeding.
