The Childhood Years

Solemn reunion with the beaten stone
In a downpour, singing starling.
There is salt water on your eye-lashes,
Droplets on my tongue. Honey mixed with wine.
I bit my lower lip. I see through the night darkly
The rites of our spiritual circumcision, bird.
You are lonesome in your flight
Between distance and dream.
Over draped eye and spent curiosity,
To me, a dawn rises to you, Sun-blasted peasant.
Come to bed now with me.
