I Was Wrapped In Black Fur And White Fur And

I Was Wrapped In Black
Fur And White Fur And
You Undid Me And Then
You Placed Me In Gold Light
And Then You Crowned Me
While Snow Fell Outside
The Door In Diagonal Darts.
While A Ten Inch Snow
Came Down Like Stars
In Small Calcium Fragments
We Were In Our Own Bodies
That Room That Will Bury Us
And You Were In My Body
That Room That Will Outlive Us
And At First I Rubbed Your
Feet Dry With A Towel
Becuase I Was Your Slave
And Then You Called Me Princess.

Oh Then
I Stood Up In My Gold Skin
And I Beat Down The Psalms
And I Beat Down The Clothes
And You Undid The Bridle
And You Undid The Reins
And I Undid The Buttons
The Bones The Confusions
The New England Postcards
The January Ten O"Clcik Night
And We Rose Up Like Wheat
Acre After Acre Of Gold
And We Harvested
We Harvested.
