Woodling , as in a lake, a single lifetime (Stein Poem)

July 15, 2013

We all begin well, just look at them.
It was going to be pleasing for them.
They have no derogatory connotation.
They are fully conscious of tenderness.
David was given to her in the machines.
The feeling of herself inside him.
It was a deeper feeling than just touching.
He felt this intuitively.
When Martha first changed she was a generator.
All this made her afraid of stopping.
Soon then they felt many impulses.
Alienation, rebellion, etc.
A lake, a single lifetime all over them.
She was very hard, just for him.
Anyone can get rich there on Americans.
Martha Redfern, eager, sensitive, woodling.
This wasn’t just some latest banking scandal elsewhere.
Martha was not even high that day or aspiring elsewhere.
Every day was giving it to each other again.
One has no sense of being distant or a machine.
Or behavior is not a part of anything.
The result is disruption of everything.
It has the character of being destroyed gracefully.
When David was changed he was a sweet little thing.
All this made him afraid of eating.
David never gives her anything but honesty.
David the salmon, galloping, irritable.
And Martha Redfern, eager, vertigo, carpeting.
In a spiritual way like disappearing gracefully.
Pick the fruits and enjoy, they are invitations.
It is the same with disappearance.
