№ I

I have run with the vapors of a faint sun
Trod in the footprints of a broken star
A hollow hello shatters the illusion
But I keep heating a heart, half pulsating, half off to sea

I’ve lain side by side with a constellation of dust
Fed on ripe earth and black leaves
I’ve seen a thousand mornings and nights too
The moon always eminent but losing touch is facile

I’ve thought you up a handful of dawns
Your words cast shade like the Milky Way
An eye never forgets and the hands remember
We dance under the same universe!


(Painting by artist Anna Madia, Eosine)
