_ moon/light
spilled in
as she slept
peacefully
next to me
in the gray darkness
of the hotel room--
dreaming something
wicked
behind those
half-moon eyes.
I realized then
I was in bed with her
not to make love,
but to learn.
not to touch her
bare shoulders,
but to study.
and it
almost took
my life
to watch her
breathe
w/o thinking

This is one of the best examples of economy in language I've seen. Not only captures intimacy, and the setting of the hotel room opens doors to many possibilities. but the ending of study taking the whole life, breathing without thinking, for once a reference to Zen that captures a slice of it rather than simply name dropping an idea. nicely done.
