There is Some Kiss

There is some kiss we want
with our whole lives,
the touch of spirit on the body.

Seawater begs the pearl
to break its shell.

And the lily, how passionately 
it needs some wild darling.

At night, I open the window
and ask the moon to come
and press its face against mine.

Breathe into me. 

Close the language door
and open the love-window.

The moon won't use the door, 
only the window.
