Three Dreams About Sex


   I lie on my back and look up
   into the envelope of dark, where
   your body appears like an inverted sea.

   My eyes trace the gentle swell
   of belly, of thigh, the tight
   ripple where the bare crease of labia
   meet between your legs.
   I wish only to cast
   my lips and tongue
   over that still pacific surface

   so I may settle in before the storm.

   You are not you in this dream.

   You are a tiny woman in a thin white shift
   that rides high over your hips.
   We have only spoken once
   at a great distance, yet
   you offer your breasts to me
   with both hands.

   There is no need for talk
   and this woman does not speak, although
   my ears are pressed and pierced
   by her animal sound.

   You are not you in this dream,
   yet is this you.

   There is
   no third dream, just

   I am in chains, like Prometheus.
   It is not an eagle that eats my liver
   but want

   and held fast in its dull agony
   I cannot return to sleep.
