The people of the world stretch out their hands to draw
a red line between us; they divide us with their arms
stretched out like quivering, poisonous snakes.
Before my eyes, your breasts sway like halcyon
dreams; like day-dreams your hair unravels upon
my chest; my heart quivers like a bird
caught in the storm; whom shall we fear?
We know what lies beyond the next bend---
it is you---you and me; then for whom else
shall we have eyes? To my eyes your breasts
are like halcyon dreams; on your breasts
my hands eager, warm; at my touch your breasts
flood over, like the mighty currents of a blind, invisible
river; they wipe away all vestiges of this unruly
world; only the powerful torrents of this huge, dark
river remain, where we are the victors, we are one, you
and I---how beautiful, how divinely beautiful these words---
You, --- you and I.
