The noise the body makes
when the body meets
the soul over the soul’s ocean and penumbra
is the old sound of up-and-down, in-and-out,
a lump of muscle chug-chugging blood
into the ear; a lover’s
heart-shaped tongue;
flesh rocking flesh until flesh comes;

Li-Young Lee, “The Cleaving” from The City In Which I Love You, published in 1990 by BOA Editions.
