Memory wears white tee-shirts, is blue-eyed,
that I "remember" her.
This new kind of "I" passes fourth-grade notes,
says "I like you" to her.
It trailed off in her swimming pool.
She was so spiteful.
That "I" remember "her" is a kind of joke,
but we did dance at Bar Mitzvahs.
And some of them were slow.
And some ended in other things.
Call this an aesthetic of Tantalus.
Tantalus was overeager in English class;
a "he" in "she" seen by me.
I heard of her exploits later.
"She's so totally after him."
"You don't have to strip to tease".
I saw her in a seeing not seen by any eye,
& the "I" that saw, saw my eye not at all.
