The Spirit Likes to Dress Up




The Spirit likes to dress up Like this Ten fingers Ten toes Shoulders, and all the rest

At night

In the black branches,

in the morning

in the blue branches of the world

It could float, of course,

but would rather plumb rough matter

Airy and shapeless thing, it needs

the metaphor of the body

lime and appetite, the oceanic fluids;

it needs the body's world, instinct

and imagination

and the dark hug of time

sweetness and tangibility to be understood

to be more than pure light

that burns

where noone is

so it enters us in the morning

shines from brute comfort

like a stitch of lightening

and at night

lights up the deep and

wondrous drownings

of the body

like a star
