Spiral Stairs III


And i'll dance with you in vienna

I'll be wearing a river's disguise

The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,

My mouth on the dew of your thighs

And i'll bury my soul in a scrapbook,

With the photographs there, and the moss

And i'll yield to the flood of your beauty

My cheap violin and my cross

And you'll carry me down on your dancing

To the pools that you lift on your wrist
