I Will Bring You Gifts

I want to rush you
insistent like the sea
love me!
Kiss Me!
With innumerable green kisses.
Cover me with blue-silver-gray rain.
Wash the mud from my hands.
Lie in my arms.

I will rise and take all the worn shoes of lovers,
postmen, accountants and spies —
I will throw them into the sea
to tell their stories to the dead.
I will return with salts and fruit and fish
with white eager caresses
and red embraces—

I will leave my gifts spilled out on the table
as I rush you again,
Insistent sea,
Impatient ocean!
