Surreptitious Kissing by Denis Johnson

Surreptitious Kissing
I want to say that
forgiveness keeps on 
dividing, that hope
gives issue to hope, 
and more, but of course I
am saying what is 
said when in this dark
hallway one encounters 
you, and paws and
assaults you—love 
affairs, fast lies—and you
say it back and we 
blunder deeper, as would
any pair of loosed 
marionettes, any couple
of cadavers cut lately 
from the scaffold,
in the secluded hallways 
of whatever is
holding us up now.
