hints on health

you touched my skin
in the crowded afternoon
my blood like a bloom
warm and erected

our bodies are useless
in winter
my need for excess
diminishes to the pursuit
of damp delights

that is to say:

in childhood i thought
heaven would be full of rich
girls gossiping
sleeping lavishly
admiring faces in the night 

i had a youth of seclusion
but still i had 
a languid appetite 
and i did prosper
even in the dark
