The RetroLounge Daily Poem Thread (Fri 12/29/06)
Coming

You are driving to the airport
Along the glittering highway
Through the warm night,
Humming to yourself.

The yellow rose buds that stood
On the commode faded and fell
Two days ago. Last night the
Petals dropped from the tulips
On the dresser. The signs of
Your presences are leaving the

House one by one. Being without
You was almost more than I
Could bear. Now the work is squared
Away. All the arrangements
Have been made. All the delays
Are past and I am thirty

Thousand feet in the air over
A dark lustrous sea, under
A low half moon that makes the wings
Gleam like fish under water-

Rushing south four hundred miles
Down the California coast
To your curving lips and your
Ivory thighs.

Kenneth Rexroth
