Imperceptible and without realizing, we splayed kiss marks
on all the rooms, thus reinventing appealing spaces.
Without a backward glance, without you noticing
I turned around to admire these melodramatic noises.
What stars (unraveling) What misgivings (feathery)
clustered in veiled circumference, this nomadic sequence!
Outskirts of a hastened ride spell a textural thicket:
shell, bone, feather, bare chest, hair pigment
flared out reflections, lizards and chalk, cranes
native of Flanders, a bellyful wielding, caught in.
Part of this is panting, tepid and predetermined
like a nasal voice or the shape of a palm of a hand
and part is clenched in accordion folds
opening over the linear lowlands of agitated sea fowl.
But what downy bracelet of crotch, pelvic burrows slide!
What meticulous soft impressions happened that night!
