Like the memory of your eyes

my Troy trusting in your wooden horse

                 - fragile interferences,

                 absolution -


After all you always wanted to leave:   Long walks

After all you always wanted to leave:   years before

                 - dogs knew their owners -


Even when we laid stomach to stomach

                 - It was some time later

                 when we turned on our backs -

My heart in your hands - it was only some time later

                 when I shivered from the cold.


You had my heart in your hands



before history,

I returned to my flesh

to shrink.


Have you ever seen him?


Have you ever met one

who seems not to see you?


He dines you every night

he wins you later

before he leaves to dine the next.


He dines you every night

and after the spring leaves are not so green

leaves you.


He loves you with all his heart and leaves you

with leaves on the red rose bed.


I want to sleep

to sleep through just enough to pass the chapel.


In the mirror I call myself



not reaching her - me.


Nowhere to go! - I said

Now Where To Go? - he asked.
