You Have So Much Wealth In Your Flesh

you have so much
wealth in your flesh

oh, you
abundance spread

oh, you

exult in
arch and stiffen
in whoop and heave

swallow tempt
and jubilee

be vain, be glorious!

shy but
you resplend

dare gaze on
your own shudders

touch and secret away
the finger’s lovings

let none love you
less than you learn
to love your own wealth
of flesh and light
