for a moment I was more spirit
than flesh
the hairs of my neck rose
and descended as a dress
of flames

smelled incense with a nose
trunk-like, felt it swing
and heard my name with ears
spread out like wings

with a whisper felled
a whole forest of dead trees
and buried myself back in my body-full of green leaves

Lovers, stars themselves,
Must part."
