The Naked Body In The River - Poem by RIC BASTASA

i put you in the river
naked,

perfect body for my
feast at night till dawn

and then i sleep in
the morning

too tired
these loving eyes

still dead about you
someone beyond

the touch of my fingers
naked body

so beautiful but
it has no eyes

and hence
cannot see me.
