THE ROBE

Sleepwalkers . . . Ghosts! Voices
like bodies coming through the mists of sleep,
we float about each other --

bare feet not touching the floor.
Talking in our lovers' voice
NAMING THE OBJECTS OF LOVE

(Inventing new tortures,
machines to carry us.
Wonders full blown in our faces.
Eyes like sapphires or opals.
Aloof as miracles. Hearing
jazz in the air. We are passing --

our shapes like nasturtiums.)
Frozen, caught held there

my shoulders won't hold you.

HEROIC ACTS
won't free us. Free us. Love.
We are voices. Sleep is with us.

Nice.
I think Robe is my favorite.
But
naming objects of love runs a close second.
