THE APOGEE


        And before the huge wave breaks forth
        it builds it up to ever greater heights
        holding within itself some eternal power,
        a physiological tremor of potential
        that lends a plosive potential, a spring like
        reservoir of promise, giving pleasurable sensation,
        a will of muscular delight, a floating
        in a balm of sybaritic power.
        All wish that they could reside there forever
        and for seconds before the wave breaks it persists
        ntimating an endless sea of bodily delight
        that might continue in infinite measures
        the suggestion of a heavenly permanence.
