The uses of the body are wake up.
The uses of the body, illusion.
  
The uses of the body. Rinse, repeat.
To make another body.
  
September. Draw the blanket up.
Lace your shoes.
  
The major and minor passions.
Sunlight. Hair.
  
The basic pleasures. Tomatoes, Keats,
meeting a smart man for a drink.
  
The uses of the body.
It is only a small house. It gets older.
  
Its upper and lower.
Its red and white trim.
  
It's tempting to gloss over this part,
so you won't really see me.
