Dialogue
By Florence Kiper Frank
 
He.
From “Women”
Studies in the Erotic Emotion

    If I should touch you now—
 
She.    Flame would follow your hands,
    Flame upon hair and brow
    Curling in little strands.
    My body is light with love        5
    As a little sun-drunk tree.
    My body is pierced through—
 
He.    With me—with me!
 
She.    Say over again, again,
    Anything wild and sweet.        10
 
He.    Shall we make magic names,
    Queer, to repeat?
 
She.    Crumple this moment up,
    Toss it against a star!
 
He.    Your body is in my arms!        15
 
She.    Yet I know not where we are!
