Come friend,

I have an old story to tell you—



Listen.

Sit down beside me and listen.

My face is red with sorrow

and my breasts are made of straw.

I sit in the ladder-back chair

in a corner of the polished stage.

I have forgiven all the old actors for dying.

A new one comes on with the same lines,

like large white growths, in his mouth.

The dancers come on from the wings,

perfectly mated.



I look up. The ceiling is pearly.

My thighs press, knotting in their treasure.

Upstage the bride falls in satin to the floor.

Beside her the tall hero in a red wool robe

stirs the fire with his ivory cane.

The string quartet plays for itself,

gently, gently, sleeves and waxy bows.

The legs of the dancers leap and catch.

I myself have little stiff legs,

my back is as straight as a book

and how I came to this place—

the little feverish roses,

the islands of olives and radishes,

the blissful pastimes of the parlor—

I'll never know.
