hand and rose

you bring to me the life; the world's
largest geodesic dome
on fire, in London, in 1967,
the smallest polar ice cap being eaten by the
hungriest man,
our sleeping through the year of the bear
fucking our way through the year of the rabbit
the sun smiling at our swaying
on the desert,
in the sand,
in the geology exhibit at the museum of modern sciences
you carry our conversation from Alaska to Olympus
in an afternoon orgy of ideas,
you lead me from Alaska to Olympus
to Ohio to Cairo in a unionized Pullman coach,
now if we could only hit it off in the sack
