154 West 27th Street1096 viewsNaked, you are simple as one of your hands,
Smooth, earthy, small, transparent, round:
You have moon lines, apple pathways:
Naked, you are slender as a naked grain of wheat.

Naked, you are blue as the night in Cuba;
You have vines and stars in your hair;
Naked, you are spacious and yellow
As summer in a golden church.

Naked, you are tiny as one of your nails,
Curved, subtle, rosy, till the day is born
And you withdraw to the underground world,

as if down a long tunnel of clothing and of chores:
Your clear light dims, gets dressed, drops its leaves,
And becomes a naked hand again.

in the darkness lies the softness

long ago it saw beauty

and retreated to the opacity of a lost thought

A Lovely Tranquility1224 views"I have named you queen.
There are taller ones than you, taller.
There are purer ones than you, purer.
There are lovelier than you, lovelier.

But you are the queen.

When you go through the streets
no one recognizes you.
No one sees your crystal crown, no one looks
at the carpet of red gold
that you tread as you pass,
the nonexistent carpet.

And when you appear all the rivers sound
in my body, bells
shake the sky, and a hymn fills the world.

Only you and I,
only you and I, my love,
listen to it."

sensual form that appears feminine at times,
masculine at other moments
depending on light and shadow
Therefore, sensuality is purely androgynous.
