I've wholly changed my view
And now I wish to know you're waiting
In your quiet crowdless way
Intent to be my guide
Into the end of things



Such an attractive thought
To know the self entire
Through giving it to your touch
To take it piece by piece apart
Perfecting the imperfect
By ending its unwhole existence
Silencing its separation anxious
cleft in twain
body and mind







Here is my, my own mind
Given without reserve to you

Here is my body unrefined
Given uncertain, hoping, just to you

And what will come of my surrender?
Death, the promises you make
How sweet and how unbroken
By a return traveler's tale


Oh, do I care?
If only Death might bear your face
I'd follow Him to Hell or Anywhere

Oh, Love
I had not known that you were there.

That last stanza: Oh! Such an out-of-nowhere pearl of a punch!

There was a detail that seemed missing.

It's based on that letter again, the one about Doctor Woolacott.
