I glimpsed you just as I was dying, cluster of grapes Dipping toward the clear river, startled white birds, Wisest and wildest flesh opened like a door All those years while flesh opened like a door And the old poignant steam of creation rose Above the calibrated hours of numbing appointments As when the odors of coffee and croissants briefly Ascend the carnal spices of the delicatessen, And the throat hurts for the beauty of one night, Which will not last, even as the feeling begins It is gone into the morning's etherizing rind.
