Poem 1982 (7)

Yearning for women

 

Women are on their way, my friend,
soon we shall be rivals
our confused eyes shining
resolution growing weaker
as poise erodes.

Laughing, they will likely compare us
to various creatures
upon two legs or four,
each lowly form in turn
serving to picture our radiant faults.

So, while this night is still coloured
by vague flushing hopes,
let us speak of our yearning
for women
before they arrive.
