Moon Clock

The ancient female spirit is dancing to the ticking hands of the moon clock. Under that moon, somewhere in the ocean of tears and blood, Among solitary icebergs of pride and islands of doubt, Where the Truth of the Ego and the Truth of the Soul Swim toward or away...

Last Chapter

The morning was rising up from its knees. It was then falling on its back and singing, gazing in fascination into the eyes of walls turning pale. The dream was generously oozing from afar, tasting like… rain and grass. The familiar smell of ink could be recognized,...

Artist’s Block

I can write my years in moons just by counting white tides under the stars. I can paint my portrait with dew just by swinging my hair and spattering the sky. I can tell my life with violins by rushing nimble bows over my veins. It is just your name looming like...

Ave Maria

This day and I, we’re both heading downhill… Him, under physics; and me, under chardonnay. Together but socially distant, me and my day are finishing our mesh. In the curious coastline paradox I keep multiplying the thread of my miniature insanities into the seine...

Us

Like the kindest look of a child (All the more wonderful since he’s not yours), So generous could my heart be, So could it sing to your tapping. The higher you are, the lower I fall. The more transparent your wing, The darker the night’s chill, The further the...

Heat

She’s on the hunt for heat. With a candle in her hand she checks out every bonfire, every beacon out there, and every sign. She reluctantly tries on skewers, but none fits. Give her a piece of coal, and she’ll start doodling little figures: “Like this. To ashes” No...

Password

Confined within my keeper’s will. I’m under his password. He is my darling warlock. His torrid eyes are black as coals. His shadow touches the ninth step on a stairway. And in his chest I hear the thunder rumble. Listen to his incantations. They are the music, the...

Silence And Breeze

Splashing water, and silence, and breeze. Two countries half-erased. I’m alone. See, that pall crawling to the shores will soon turn the city into a milky-gray turbid mass. Not spying at all, a dragonfly will fly up to explore me. I’ll close my eyes – And from...

Ange Et Démon

You, Demon, have inflamed nothing but kinky anxiety. You, Angel, have left a simple mantra to be good. Two marks on my soul: a scar of passion and a trail to peace.

Moon

The more I know you the deeper I fall. Flying past innocent Alice I scream to her “Rabbits are okay! But beware of the faun!” Now I know… You could fuck the Moon and whack it off its course. The Earth would be flooded. The apocalypse would come. Please leave me...

Powder

Grind me into clouds of fragrant powder to enswathe your skin.   The world can’t see us anymore except the magnificent dawn behind the clouds colored like a nymph’s thigh.   Don’t miss me after I dissipate. Like any cloud, I wasn’t...

Out of Reach

I will never lean my head back on your shoulder to see the perforated sun winking at us through linden leaves. I will never know what you smell like. I will never see the way bed sheets ripple under your weight. I will never crush a million butterflies by saying...
