Still – Life with Harlow and Lombard

I like to think of Harlow in
Her smiling way. That sweetness
That can bear such slight. It
Rises up red
From a bed
Of water in, the jungle.

While Gable laughs and laughs.
He laughs and laughs.

Then we see Lombard with naked
Feet. Feet that rub up feet.
Below a kitchen table in
The dawn of day.

While Gable laughs
And laughs.

    “That can bear such slight. It” — “… such sly tit” — hilarious

    “Feet that rub up feet”—not only do you make me see it, like Rosemary said, but you make me feel it too!!

    A very physical poem can feel parts of it.
