Deserted like the wharves at dawn. On nights like these I held her in my arms. Silent and starving, I prowl through the streets.
I kissed her again and again under the endless sky. I no longer love her, that's certain, but how I loved her. Still it would be marvelousto terrify a law clerk with a cut lily,or kill a nun with a blow on the ear. Her voice, her bright body. She loved me , sometimes I loved her too.
