In the last narrows
of the last cave

she

unattainable

slips into the shadows

no, is the shadows.

Can you discern her frame
from the other shades
of darkness

as you dive
the long slow dive
like a descending leaf
towards her?

Is she beautiful?

Is she shapely?

Is she beautiful

she who quivers
in the cold corners

wrapped in black sky
beaded sparsely with stars?

Is she beautiful

she who out of sheer
restlessness

begets Sleep
and finally
Death?
