“BelovedCosta Rican Poet
in whose body I rest,
What will your dream be like
when I have sought you without finding you?
my love, most sweet
as the allusion of a spikenard
between distant brown scents,
What will become of your heart when I love you?
What will it be like to find you when your body is love
and your voice
a bouquet of light?…”
