BY WALT WHITMAN
A glimpse through an interstice caught,
Of a crowd of workmen and drivers in a bar-room around the stove late of a winter night, and I unremarked seated in a corner,
Of a youth who loves me and whom I love, silently approaching and seating himself near, that he may hold me by the hand,
A long while amid the noises of coming and going, of drinking and oath and smutty jest,
There we two, content, happy in being together, speaking little, perhaps not a word.
BY BENJAMIN ALIRE SÁENZ
I came to you one rainless August night.
You taught me how to live without the rain.
You are thirst and thirst is all I know.
The hottest blue. You blow a breeze and brand
Your breath into my mouth. You reach—then bend
Your force, to break, blow, burn, and make me new.
You wrap your name tight around my ribs
And keep me warm. I was born for you.
Above, below, by you, surrounded.
I wake to you at dawn. Never break your
Knot. Reach, rise, blow, Sálvame, mi Dios,
Trágame, mi Tierra. Salva, Traga, Break me,
I am bread. I will be the water for your thirst.
“IT’S ALL I HAVE TO BRING TODAY”
BY EMILY DICKINSON
It’s all I have to bring today—
This, and my heart beside—
This, and my heart, and all the fields—
And all the meadows wide—
Be sure you count—should I forget
Someone the sum could tell—
This, and my heart, and all the Bees
Which is the Clover dwell?
BY CAROL ANN DUFFY
I think I was searching for treasures or stones
in the clearest of pools
when your face…
when your face,
like the moon in a well
where I might wish…
might well wish
for the iced fire of your kiss;
only on the water my lips, where your face…
where your face was reflected, lovely,
not there when I turned
to look behind at the emptying air…
the emptying air.

“IT IS HERE”
BY HAROLD PINTER
What sound was that?
I turn away, into the shaking room.
What was that sound that came in on the dark?
What is this maze of light it leaves us in?
To turn away and then turn back?
What did we hear?
It was the breath we took when we first met.
