Best Poem of Frank Bana

Come Closer To Me

To secret homes where we belong
Let my embrace be all your world

And I will bring to you my soul
Ecstatic of our myths and tales
The stories that our bodies tell
 
How profoundly do I find
The essence of your being now
Adoring all your womanhood
This man in me is offered up
 
To call across the spaces wide

In the morning line for government bread

She stands in pink at the school-bus stop
Faded satchel on her back, her eyes contained
By some slight terror of the daily world
Of the diesel clouds and traffic waves
