I LIKE MY BODY WHEN IT IS WITH YOUR

BODY. IT IS SO QUITE A NEW THING.

MUSCLES BETTER AND NERVES MORE.

I LIKE YOUR BODY. I LIKE WHAT IT DOES,

I LIKE IT’S HOWS. I LIKE TO FEEL THE SPINE

OF YOUR BODY AND ITS BONES. AND THE TREMBLING

-FIRM-SMOOTH NESS AND WHICH I WILL

AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN

KISS, I LIKE KISSING THIS AND THAT OF YOU,

I LIKE, SLOWLY STROKING THE, SHOCKING FUZZ

OF YOUR ELECTRIC FUR, AND WHAT-IS-IT COMES

OVER PARTING FLESH …. AND EYES BIG LOVE-CRUMBS,

 

AND POSSIBLY I LIKE THE THRILL

OF UNDER ME YOU SO QUITE NEW

 

EE CUMMINGS.


 

LAMENT

I MISS MY BODY WHEN IT IS WITH YOUR

BODY. THAT OLD THING. BATTERED AND WORN,

LIKE A FAVOURITE OVERCOAT, KEEPING ME WARM,

I MISS THE SOFT SHAPE OF YOUR SPINE,

PROVIDING AN ARCH TO BRIDGE THE GAP,

BETWEEN THE ONE AND TWO OF US…

THE WHISPER OF YOUR LIPS ON

THE NAPE OF MY NECK AS YOU

PLAYFULLY PINCH MY PUCKERED NIPPLE,

I MISS THE MY-NESS OF MY HAND

IN YOUR HAND ON YOUR SHOULDER,

AND THE SMELL OF YOUR UNRULY

TOUSLE HAIR, TICKLING MY NOSE

AND LIPS.

 

I MISS THE ONENESS OF THIS ONE

WITH YOUR ONE AND THUS

WE BECOME A TRINITY.

I MISS THESE OF YOU AND I AND US.

I MISS THE US MOST OF ALL.

 

DALE ‘M’
