when summer evening swelters
& your sweaty sheets are hot,
a cooling pool shall spring from you
in fountains long forgot

these photographs I've fastened
with ropes and bows and knots
I keep beyond the deepest ponds
in fountains long forgot

I wait to be awakened
to stir the dirt I rot
by she who blows a flute of bones
at fountains long forgot

I dragged you through my doorstep
and I dumped you in my cot
and while you snore I’ll guard the door
to fountains long forgot

I pray that fate permits you
to find what I could not—
I searched the hay for a needle which lay
in fountains long forgot

and when you shine your searchlight
inside my secret spot,
you’ll see me soundly sleeping down these
fountains long forgot

the love I know shall gently flow
from fountains long forgot
