TO MINISTER

One pair of hands
is not enough.
I want to be

          touched
and                           touched
     and       touched

of men, of women
on shoulders, on thighs

dipped
in unguent

rubbed into my hips

into my back so it will give,

into my chest
so this, too, can accept
touch,

               soft,
              softer,
                 —
