Honesty Is the Wildness of the Sea -- V.B. Price

(excerpted and transcribed from this reading)

Only you, for me –
The warmth of your mind,
The breezes your courage attracts –
Only you and I together relieve the fever from the streets of hate,
Stretched out on our bodies like myths sunbathing in the glades.
Only we, together, know each other all alone.
We speak to each other as if we were the sea.
Anything can be said to the ocean.
Without the slightest fear
And the ocean hears.
Imagine, being comprehended by the sea.

It is this we know between us.
