There is this huge woman,
(O G-d she’s beautiful)
this huge woman
who, even though she is all women,
has a very specific character;
this huge woman
who sometimes comes to me
very early in the morning
and plucks me out of my skin!
We ‘roll around heaven’
several miles above the pine trees
and there’s no space between us,
but we’re not One
or anything like that.
We’re two huge people,
two immense bodies
of tenderness and delight,
with all the pleasures felt and magnified
to match our size.
Whenever this happens
I am usually ready to forgive everyone
who doesn’t love me enough
including you, Sahara,
especially you.
