In the Obscuring Mist


I kiss the air for she is me.

In the darkness there’s a body there.

Sultry night on top of me.

I hold myself — I kiss the air.


My body pale make love to thee.

You blind me with black widow hair.

You blind my eyes — I cannot see.

I hold myself and kiss the air.


You seduce with trickery.

You trick me with your shadow snare.

I bare my soul for you to see —

Alas that there is no one there.
