The Viewing
I’m standing on the veil of light
and I’m looking from under its shadow
at the changing colors
of those several words about us
untangled from the comet’s tail
a request to life
is wrapping around the loom of film
of the stopped future
it speaks with silence of
dancing with the wind force
flashes of our glances
staring at the sun.
A Lighthouse keeper
you are the motion of my hands
the voice of shut mouth
and the mystery
warming up a frigid night
stealthily in drowse
we stumble
on bare shadows
I braided a footbridge from them
over an unflowing river.
a being devoid of kisses
I’m not crying anymore
from today
my sins create only me
I’m looking for love
to even the heartbeat.
