A GLIMPSE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A glimpse, through an interstice caught
Last Line: Little, perhaps not a word.
Subject(s): Gays & Lesbians; Men; Homoeroticism; Lesbians; Gay Women; Gay Men

A glimpse through an interstice caught,
Of a crowd of workmen and drivers in a bar-room around the
stove late of a winter night, and I unremark'd seated
in a corner,
Of a youth who loves me and whom I love, silently
approaching and seating himself near, that he may hold
me by the hand,
A long while amid the noises coming and going, of drinking
and oath and smutty jest,
There we two, content, happy in being together, speaking
little, perhaps not a word.
