my naked lady framed
in twilight is an accident
 
whose niceness betters easily the intent
of genius—
                        painting wholly feels ashamed
before this music,and poetry cannot
go near because perfectly fearful.
 
meanwhile these speak her wonderful
But i(having in my arms caught
 
the picture)hurry it slowly
 
to my mouth,taste the accurate demure
ferocious
              rhythm of
                            precise
laziness.  Eat the price
 
of an imaginable gesture
 
exact warm unholy
