Apart Open Still - Poem by James McLain
To feel for ever that it is soft my fall don't swell.
Awake for ever in a sweet surrender to the sky undressed.
Laid apart so open still,
to still to hear one tender-taken softly whispered water lily fragrant this when heard her breath,
And so I live for you for ever-or to never give you up to death.
