  1. 1
    • If the moon smiles, she would resemble you.
    • You leave the same impression
    • Of something beautiful, but annihilating.
    • Both of you are great light borrowers.
    • Her O-mouth grieves at the world; yours is unaffected,

    -
  2. 2
    • And your first gift is making stone out of everything.
    • I wake to a mausoleum; you are here,
    • Ticking your fingers on the marble table, looking for cigarettes,
    • Spiteful as a woman, but not so nervous,
    • And dying to say something unanswerable.

    -
  3. 3
    • The moon, too, abases her subjects,
    • But in the daytime she is ridiculous.
    • Your dissatisfactions, on the other hand,
    • Arrive through the mailslot with loving regularity,
    • White and blank, expansive as carbon monoxide.

    -
  4. 4
    • No day is safe from news of you,
    • Walking about in Africa maybe, but thinking of me.
