LONTANANZAS

 

I built you up

From diaphanous drops

that clarify

the thin contour

of the wind’s arms.

 

Those

dancing

upon

my face,

hold up and excuse

the rising of

light stealth birds

on the horizon.

 

Sky wings bearing

fragrant

polyphonic aromas,

diluting

moist loams

in vetiver

and bergamot,

disseminated

over your body’s

drought.

 

I envision you

In my silent

barren palms,

as drops

upon my river;

ecstatic the open sea

conspires,

flows against formed

verbal tide,

in ivy

language.

 

Warp

naked

fanciful voices,

dawning

deep inside my skin,

cracking

desire’s opacity.

 

I built you up!

while it rains.

 

 

 

ABSENCE

 

You left

like rain

after destroying

the bare countryside.

 

Below the leaves

your name

flying with the wind

foreseen the verse,

its useless tessitura

upon the unpropitious

yesterday.

 

I still don’t understand

the seven letters

building

your absence.

 

It’s not dark yet…

And the language

of the sun

is no longer the same.
