Love's Circus / He'll drink her tongue | 31-Oct-16

Enquirer seeking what may be a Bill Manhire poem published in New Zealand in the 1970s, possibly in an Otago University student magazine. The poem does not appear in Manhire's Collected Poems of 2001. The title may be Love's Circus or Love Circus. Enquirer remembers following fragments but these may not be entirely correct:

He'll drink her tongue
and with the dark-pronged spider of her eye
she'll weave a web of love wild and wide...

...a little nearer death.

NB this poem will be in copyright. Please don't post full text.
