Because I love you last night

because I love you last night

 

clothed in sea lace

appeared to me

your mind drifting

with chuckling rubbish

of pearl weed coral and stones;

 

lifted, and(before my

eyes sinking)inward, fled; softly

your face smile breasts gargled

by death:drowned only

 

again carefully through deepness to rise

these your wrists

thighs feet hands

 

poising

to again utterly disappear;

rushing gently swiftly creeping

through my dreams last

night, all of your

body with its spirit floated

clothed only in

 

the tide’s acute weaving murmur

E.E. Cummings
