Nude bodies like peeled logs
sometimes give off a sweetest
odor, man and woman
 
under the trees in full excess
matching the cushion of
 
aromatic pine-drift fallen
threaded with trailing woodbine
a sonnet might be made of it
 
Might be made of it! odor of excess
odor of pine needles, odor of
peeled logs, odor of no odor
other than trailing woodbine that
 
has no odor, odor of a nude woman
sometimes, odor of a man.
