Thank you kindly
For dismembering 
The totem I carried
Of you, sewn into 

The fabric of my 
Dressing gown
Because, sir 

I have no need
For half love
Or half lighted
Dreams, belying 
My senses and 
Disrupting clarity

I want to want,
Only, truth and
Limbs like branches

To embrace me;
To shield me from
The rain and the 
Wind and the storm

To love me
Without restraint——

To love me
With conviction.
