TO SPEAK OF YOU AND ME
This is how I speak of you and me
Because I love you an din love I know
to enter like a Full Moon
From elsewhere, for your small foot in the vast sheets
To pluck jasmine petals
and I have the power
as you are asleep, to blow to take you
through glimmering passages
and hidden archways of the sea
Hypnotized trees with spiders that shine silver
Fate will turn elsewhere the engravings
Of the palm, like a key owner
One moment Time will give its assent
How else, since people love each other
The sky will portray our entrails
And innocence will hit the world
With the poignancy of black death
I will mourn forever, can you hear me? For you,
All alone in Paradise.
