Curses? The dark? Struggling? Where's the source
Of these yarns now (except in nightmares, of course)?
At once whatever happened starts receding.
Panting, and back on board, we line the rail
Only an attitude remains:
Time has transfigured them into
They would not guess how early in
Their supine stationary voyage
The air would change to soundless damage....
Rigidly they
Persisted, linked, through lengths and breadths
Of time. Snow fell, undated.
Side by side, their faces blurred,
The earl and countess lie in stone....
Rain patters on a sea that tilts and sighs.
Fast-running floors, collapsing into hollows,
Tower suddenly, spray-haired.
Such attics cleared of me! Such absences!
And girls you have to tell to pull their socks up
Are those whose pants you'd most like to pull down.
All the familiar horrors we
Associate with others
