these fieldish flowers that I bring to you,
and rare coins to fill the vase
these stones that are smoothed by diaphanous lakes -
let's lay them down together

these fiendish proverbs
that I read to you
and fair poems to speed the pace
of a heart that would do whatever it takes -
let's do it now together

and these hands move over me
and these hands move me

these fetal vowers that I bear for you
parading your perpetual face,
this population that ecstasy makes -
let's make it now together

love is supposed to be outrageous
girls and boys
they're supposed to be courageous
heaven help me stroke my baby
cocooned in his cornsilk sepal
chaste and chaser, guilt and gracer
love is supposed to be outrageous

these pleasing hours that I steal from you,
and briar roses to slow the chase
of a word that would give my lover the shakes -
let's shake it out together
