I want to drift out on the ocean,
I want to see penguins breeding on the shore in Chile;
I want to be carried everywhere like a baby;
I want to be naked all the time, and safe.
I want to find some peace for myself while he’s sleeping.
The dog sleeps under the table.
The visions of nakedness are gone;
the colored lights dancing over my eyes have faded, as with the stars…
It’s now late afternoon,
only 2 1/2 hours until we
can break the day-long fast
until next year
