Inside the foliage a new stalk grows and twists around the fold of each arm You touch me with your spring,
embrace me with your summer We rub together, winding in the wood When you leave it is winter’s sun setting too early
Bring back your spring to me.
Let us lie again in soft moss beneath the shade of summer Our limbs a turning vine my breasts as berries your lips are wine Thistle milk rolls down our legs Sap sticks to our fingers like candy
