Do we make contact with a kiss? On what do two lips meeting Two lips insist? Did Cleopatra Really kiss, who never climbed The ratty scaffolding behind the stars? Does love demand reality? O fools, is what we feel all folderol? Do hearts connect both ache and cause? Have we really any more Than a projectionist's panache, Lighting up our solitary dark With scenes? Dreaming in daylight What our lonely dreams may mean? I hunger for reality under pinking skies At one, at one, With the inward of my eye.
