Is it "You're wondering if I'm lonely" ? Google her spelt AdriEnne Rich with that line.

Since Adrienne Rich's work is still under copyright, you will most likely find her work in a bookstore or library. Here's a link to a work called ''From Two Songs.' I don't know if it's what you're looking for. [www.palace.net] />

Here's the second half of the poem called "Two Songs" by Adrienne Rich:

That "old last act"!
And yet sometimes
all seems post coitum triste
and I a mere bystander.
Somebody else is going off,
getting shot to the moon.
Or a moon-race!
Split seconds after
my opposite number lands
I make it--
we lie fainting together
at a crater-edge
heavy as mercury in our moonsuits
till he speaks--
in a different language
yet one I've picked up
through cultural exchanges...
we murmur the first moonwords:
Spasibo. Thanks. O.K.

Always the problem with non-official sites- knowing if they've got correct copies.
