Question description

We have not, up to

Now, known each other

The light jive and fly

  Speech over public

 Tables do not count

For much.

I look for

You at your place, in

The few books and bare

Walls, even listen

For echoes of you

in the music. I no-

Tice an old milk car-

Ton; I hear so much

Anonymous noise.

 

  You expand yourself-

Something-within me

And I pant beneath

You,open,heaving.

  You expend yourself-

Something-within me

And I pant beneath

You,open,heaving.

You withdraw; I close

And stillness and breath,

Bodies burrowing

Into damps sheets are

The only sounds in

The silence. Silence:

Good jive ,a light rap

And fly speech over

A public table.
