Tell me, Stranger

Rodin, The Kiss

TELL ME, STRANGER

Tell me, Stranger, why we met,
tell me who you are and set
your lips on mine lest I forget.

Tell me, Stranger, tell me why
you looked so deep into my eye
and what happens when we die.

Tell me, Stranger, why we’re here
on this far out wild frontier
and on my frozen cheek this tear.

Tell me, Stranger, tell me why
you slid your hand up my sleek thigh
like a slithering serpent sly.

Tell me why I ever let
you thrust your cruel sword erect
into my wound of wild scarlet.

Tell me, Stranger, why we met,
tell me who you are and set
your lips on mine lest I forget.
