  9677.     

of tigers and rivers

you speak of tigers
and you define it not of its colors or shape or form
but of its shadow
this tiger that lies soundlessly between the
wedges of words
inside the indolence of some syllables
at first i am confused
that this tiger may come to form with sharp
razor teeth and then with new feet jump before me
to devour me
but you assured me, diligently in all the books of your
library, filled with dusts and silence, that this will never happen,
i waited for quite long,
there is this sound of a burst of a gun,
some drops of blood dripping from the ceiling,
i am looking for the scene, the Act, and the characters,
of the play that you have not finished writing,
there is the endless space spreading before me
the rivers flow
from my mouth, and i am carried away, to your glimpse
of eternity.
i am afraid, that your tiger is dead.
i suspect, that the rivers too dried.
i hope for more words, i am tired
the same thing happens in the history of men
promises are made to be broken
tigers are shadowy beasts that exist only in the minds
and rivers seemingly flow like all tomorrows
eternal, they never stop
they never end. Like air.

  9678.     

Of Two Different Natures

shimmering sea
floating forever on
the waves

landing on the shore

the shimmering is gone
the gray sands are hungry
and there are too many of them

countless
annihilators
of motion and light

earth and water
always part away

the sky is ready
for the ball of fire
that soon
shall take its
needed sleep

  9679.     

of walls and fences....

now marlon
you are a man and father
though the
child is not yours but as you take it
inside your arms
you finally have a world of your own
away from us
as you build now your walls
and fences
as you exclude those that
care for you
it is the distance that watches you
now
it is the fullness
that you take proud
the tower on top of the
cliff
leaning upon a
white cotton
cloud

what lovely fig tree are you
no one uproots you now
no one

javi cries
and you shut us away
at least
for the moment
and you call it
glorious, joyful
we wait.

  9680.     

Off the Record as amended to be removed upon request later

me too
i do not know who Adria Moya is
or was
or be, as she claims to be

she says she is alive
(how sweet)


but she is not liking my liking her
at 67
and me at 76,

(oops my nose is stretching)

it is not that bad
i can still manage


i am a
Doctor of Loss


it may be unethical to ask a Lady
her age
but i think
i need to know her real name, if she obliges

and from what university did she earn
her
Ph.D. in Stalkery?

I had mine at the University of Loss Vegos.


(ha ha ha, just a joke for the night in your place, Adria
it is noontime in mine)
