Any Moment



The intimate is never intense.  Dispense
with that confusion at once.
You are made to lust for violence.
Abstain! Repent! Confess!
In the gentle lies the hint,
lies the caress.
Proceed steadily, without regret.
As if at any moment, without notice, you might
be interrupted and, unprepared, might cease.
