So Close - The Prefiguration - 1971

Drawing by Claudia Warren

against light you my wife gather flowers along
the river reflecting hill and forsythia
at night, your fragrance dissolves metaphor
___________________________________________

in the midst of the collapse our room dark our
speech our love the background
___________________________________________

our bodies naked given up to each other reveal
the ecstasy the earth
___________________________________________

the world a river flower reflecting light revealing
a river flower the world reveals our love in love
___________________________________________

your odor returning night the bed our love returns
sea our first year
___________________________________________

body to body our night less boundary than fragrance
releases bird hill river
___________________________________________
