You henchman of mine, you sly and elegant thing,
without whom, like a winter
the outcome of the matter,
of the circumstance in which
I find myself
this hermit-like, adulterous position,
without whom I would have nobody
Back to the premises, which, like a hound
needing to be chained.
The fact of the body
somehow not only your stomach
but every other ancient stomach
all these stomachs churching in you
A body doing as it will and as it must
two bodies doing as they will and as they must.
The observation I was nursing was turning
in my chamber it was how do you feed yourself
without a companion
not a difficulty I have dissolved like rain.
