LA PLUS BLANCHE
JEAN HARLOW, YOU ARE IN BEAUTY ON DARK EARTH WITH WHITE FEET! MICHAEL
slaying the dragon is not more wonderful than you. To air
you give magical sleekness. We shall carry you into Space
on our shoulders. You triumph over all with warm legs and a
smile of wistful anxiety that’s cover for the honesty
spoken by your grace! Inner energy presses out to you in warmness –
you return love. Love returned for admiration! Strangeness
is returned for you by desire. How. Where
but in the depth of Jean Harlow is such strangeness
made into grace? How many women are more beautiful
in shape and apparition! How few can /have/
draw such love to them? For you are the whole creature of love!
Your muscles are love muscles!
Your nerves — Love nerves!
And your upturned
Sleep dreams of you.
