There are a few our bodies that emerge

                                                       into wish as a god

rises from the ocean, emotion and

                           reminiscence hold like dripping clothes—this

                wish is like

                                      coming into that heated red

 

on the mouth of a Delacroix lion,

                stalwart, constantly that red

                             which makes
