Back Next Vital

He was in the vital
and the vital came to him
And breasts were there
to be explored
and bare stomachs
and pubic hairs
Time stopped
and it was the women
who stopped time
And time would move on
only if he were greedy
only if he held onto
what was already time
to let go of. Then time would move on.
for the next moment
is already coming
with another Hello
waiting her turn

Irwin R. Shaw - March 1st 1989
