"Secret Fantasies"

My own extra arms

are liable to strangle me,

but my long, flowing skirt

is a river,

and I shall swim

to comparative safety.

I long to savour the taste of

the fruit, not yet plucked from

these trees.

It is pleasant to indulge

such harmless, futile,

even extravagant, fantasies.
