i can paint you in the nude
with words too naked to be spoken
i can draw your body
i can even outline your soul

ILLUSTRATION BY PERRY GIL MALLARI

in the lines of my poesy
yes i will portray you too
O golden goddess!
O vestal of all races!
the world will see
your unsullied sweetness
mocking death & decay
with your orient body
i will sing of your nakedness
and i will sing of your truth
of your Sanskrit beginnings
i will whisper your name
that will open a byway
to an edenic place
with no walls
no secrets
paradise
peace
