Sarah Giragosian: Eros

the fold in the belly;
                                (the verb)
                                        bouncy in its parentheses;
the giant squid’s foot-wide eye
                                      mostly veiled from us,
and the idea of its eighth arm
                         twining with another;
the thrill of restraint
                                          against desire,
                  the anonymity of the caretaker
who will anoint us
                          in our final bath;
the blindfold
                            and the lightness of the hand
               on the small of our back.
