I've always liked ee cummings

i like my body when it is with your

I like my body when it is with your
body. It is so quite new a thing.
Muscles better and nerves more.
i like your body. i like what it does,
i like its hows. i like to feel the spine
of your body and its bones, and the trembling
-firm-smooth ness and which i will
again and again and again
kiss, i like kissing this and that of you,
i like, slowly stroking the, shocking fuzz
of your electric fur, and what-is-it comes
over parting flesh ... And eyes big love-crumbs,


and possibly i like the thrill

of under me you so quite new

i go to this window

i go to this window

just as day dissolves
when it is twilight(and
looking up in fear


i see the new moon
thinner than a hair)


making me feel
how myself has been coarse and dull
compared with you, silently who are
and cling
to my mind always


But now she sharpens and becomes crisper
until i smile with knowing
-and all about
herself


the sprouting largest final air

plunges
inward with hurled
downward thousands of enormous dreams


[in my head] whawhawha....
[in my ears] She by Elvis Costello
