1. Dwelling by Li-Young Lee

    Dwelling

    As though touching her
    might make him known to himself,

    as though his hand moving
    over her body might find who
    he is, as though he lay inside her, a country

    his hand’s traveling uncovered,
    as though such a country arose
    continually up out of her
    to meet his hand’s setting forth and setting forth.

    And the places on her body have no names.
    And she is what’s immense about the night.
    And their clothes on the floor are arranged
    for forgetfulness.
