The Bleeding Moment

The Bleeding Moment (1971)


I have enough

just now, maybe forever.

Two into one,

we stick together

here and there.

With no one else,

we summoned

this perfect moment.

If we lie here breathless,

will we compel

this perfect moment

to bleed into

the next and

the next and

the next?

If we lie here at ease,

will this perfect moment

harden and clot?

Will a sheath

scab around

its vital ooze?

If we arise,

will the husk of

this perfect moment


If not, when will

the roughness of

this perfect moment’s

scar no longer attract

our unthinking caresses?
