    Strong piece... and a great teaching poem. It demonstrates how one can begin by describing a situation and then how one line ('We both wanted to know\something about somebody.') elevates the piece into a more philosophical\intellectual realm. Then back to description of the 'scene, ' followed by a new description, the snow and streetlights slowing the pace, and the whisper, yes, the whisper. Love this! Shelley A. Leedahl (Edmonton, AB Canada)

the quick shiver, the beautiful awkward gesture
into nakedness. Her skin startled me--
luminous or pale, depending. We didn't know
