    and you walked together toward
    love in a green meadow
    to understand anything of skin,
    the aspens’ flicker of dizzy,
    ants, dirt over your face
    darkness brought the room closer
    made the earth shake out
    of your ear here touch
    the unimaginable bareness could make
    us small again, again delight
    flame is what wind wants
    out of my body the straw
    body turning to mice now
    a heart forests beneath sleeping
    and fang light clanging out
