- June 19th, 1974
Spirited dipsfling tongues of water, lick onto her fingers,witless.The water is calm beneath our boat.She trails long hands into murkish angry depths, laughing at the trails of spiralsFollowing and repulsing her movements.
We are naked in pure summer sunlightrocking in our battered fixed-up boat,tempting the capsize,relaxed.Tanned golden peaks, sensual,mosquitoes humming buzzing,somehow we are swifter than the oldest rivers,moving gently among rushesand sunlight. [End Page 82]
