Magdalene: Her Dream of Integration

I wanted to make love with them both at the same time:
to place my hand there where his body extended into her body
to where her body received his body

– to feel the shaft of him
entering her and pulling out and pushing in – that
excited me almost unbearably – but I couldn’t get to them,

wandering through the hotel halls, up this corridor, down that corridor,
mute with desire, I woke trembling.
I’m trembling now.
