Start the Week With Beauty

Number 8
–Lawrence Ferlinghetti
from Pic­tures of the Gone World

It was a face which dark­ness could kill
      in an instant
a face as eas­i­ly hurt
     by laugh­ter or light
‘We think dif­fer­ent­ly at night.’
     she told me once
lying back languidly
     And she would quote Cocteau
‘I feel there is an angel in me’ she’d say
     ‘whom I am con­stant­ly shocking’
Then she would smile and look away
     light a cig­a­rette for me
          sigh and rise
and stretch
     her sweet anatomy
          let fall a stocking
