Whatever it is to be “transcendent”


      they showered and with grace, thought
      of doing something with the living room—
      another lamp maybe
      and the arrangement would step back,
      no shyness or shame, just naked
      and they reclined into their seats with the question
      of how to be of use, and we declined to answer.
