Verse from the poem, Complexity of Passion:
In the bedroom
Gentled with yellows,
No curtains, white space at the window.
I am sure I can hear snow falling.
Honey in the wall mellows a thousand bees
And their Queen. I think I hear them speak.
One green duck egg in a saucer on the dresser,
Dry inside, reminds me.
Didn't someone say,
What is beautiful is fleeting.
I touch your throat. You breathe.
A bedroom within our bedroom,
Wyeth's Master Bedroom hangs here:
White space, shadow and sunshine at the window,
Old chenille spread with the sleeping dog, Rattler.
That old dog made of angled bones, dreaming.
- Estuary, Poetry of Barbary Chaapel
