when god lets my body be
 
from each brave eye shall sprout a tree
fruit that dangles therefrom
 
the purpled world will dance upon
between my lips which did sing
 
a rose shall beget the spring
that maidens whom passion wastes
 
will lay between their little breasts
my strong fingers beneath the snow
 
into strenuous birds shall go
my love walking in the grass
 
their wings will touch with her face
and all the while shall my heart be
with the bulge and nuzzle of the sea
