Which season are you lagging behind in?
 
A late snowfall from the dormer window
with a warm forehead …
the terror of mermaids for you too.
You find yourself almost in the summer:
sudden storms and animals
coming down to the plains between squares and weeds.
The city, a row of avenues
with signs “To Let”, “For Sale”
and you can’t find those bars and shops anymore.
Queuing up at “We Buy Gold”, in the pockets
ancient jewels symbol of other seasons,
sacraments to celebrate.
Where did those Sundays go?
Vanished like the prayers of a saint
to stop lava flows,
but already a new one to invoke
for miracles under catacombs.
Those Egon’s drawings burned like fever
in your chest … forgotten models,
to be sketched in a portrait
drunk in some cafe before the war,
at the end of another secular empire.
 
 
 
***
 
You were no longer used
to walking…
like when, as a child
after a debilitating spell of flu,
you yearned to run out in the street
after a football.
It will never be like being in your avenues,
your neighbourhood, those Deco villas
too solemn:
they are certainly not semi-detached…
your myopic eighties world.
Your mother won’t be there to call you back
for dinner, your father tired from work,
another day between life and death
but always smiling for your benefit.
You’re looking for his steps in closed cafes,
silent arcades that did witness
farewell kisses at sunset.
Who knows when you will again see
his figure arising from behind millennial marbles,
now that even a mild temperature
frightens you like distant sirens.
