Body and no-body, flesh and no-flesh

Not as a fugitive, blindly or bitterly,

But as a child might, with no other wish?

Yes, utterly.

sleep..... Carry you and ferry you to burial mysteriously, Take you and receive you, Consume you, engulf you, In the huge cave, my belly, lave you With huger waves continually.//// wonderful expression

such a fantastic poem... seems a precursor to something like Michael Dransfield's 'Epiderm'...
