My Naked Wife Watching Her Body

(inspired by Dali’s painting with the same title…1945)

To Jess


I am the perfect temple made by God
Blending Heaven with Spirit architecture
To bring you joy and wonder, and delight
To teach you Heaven’s flight on rays of light…

I’m transparent – but you don’t see *inside*
You are already *in* but you don’t know it
I watch your helpless struggle from beside
This Mirror which blinded you with its sight

Lost in all these details that lie within
You do not see the magic in God’s sphere
The Queen you seek so much is reigning here!…
In her perfection you now disappear…
