Best Poem of Doren Robbins

You Float Down My Eyes (Love Poem)

You walk up from the river
you float down my eyes―

do what you like, white strap-lines
on the clove shade of your shoulders.

The moon comes up on
the burnt-looking horizon,

you walk up from the river,
a river of yourself― you float
down my eyes.

I stare over the split
stone cliff, the donkey standing
on the olive-shaded hill-it's all

the same― you float
down my eyes― I look away―
you float down my eyes.

Do what you like,
on the hillside of oregano,
in the field of short sunflowers,...

I wove a blanket
out of the sand
for you,
and a little hat
for your head buried
between the moistened depths
and sudden openings. Rough
jewel, rare blossom between
overlapping petals
