ARTSY BARBIE

I crave you
Your slender curves
Big ideals
Long octopus legs
Curling mine

Still, no matter how
Much you excite visions
In me just standing
There
It’s what you say that

Sends me full throttle
You would make a valley
Of dry bones leap up
To jitterbug
Ruah, I believe, is the

Hebrew word for wind
Breath of God
May it wrap round you as
Wings bearing you off
To your next enchantment
