give me the inconceivable you
woman of the wild
moving not knowing she’s been witnessed.
give me the soft tones of whispering flesh
eyes that know it all when they see me.
on the streets of New York we’ll walk palm in palm
crawl around Central Park.
we’ll take in an Arkells concert
pay 15 bucks for the unknown Hamilton
grazing in concrete fields.
give me the hook of your hand
squeezing mine in a hostel – hotel with an ‘s’ –
we can leave an art gallery or better yet
National Library Public – you be Stantz and i’ll be Bill Murray
give me the nakedness of your sainthood
a nude woman fresh from bathing – a white wrap around your hair.
as you lean on the bed and into the mirror – ignore market street
or Times Square
but don’t ignore me
and know when you are not watching
i am observing you
and wishing only for more time-
knowing we have an abundance of wasted moments
where we forgot at times to laugh and be one…..
