my smallheaded pearshaped
 
lady in gluey twilight
moving,suddenly
 
is three animals.  The
minute waist continually
 
with an African gesture
 
utters a frivolous intense half of
Girl which(like some
 
floating snake upon itself always and
slowly which upward certainly is pouring)emits
 
a pose
          :to twitter wickedly
 
whereas the big and firm legs moving solemnly
like careful and furious and beautiful elephants
 
(mingled in whispering thickly smooth thighs
thinkingly)
remind me of Woman and
 
how between
her hips India is.
