Back Next Copier

The image of outside
parallels the image of inside
like a copier duplicates the original
and that is how I shall kiss my
upon your face
Rosary beads are the lines upon your face
and they curve upon your cheeks
where with my kisses I shall count
them forever
if nothing special comes
from this mode of worship
then the sun will come up
and wash the moon away

Irwin R. Shaw - November 2nd 1985
