  3198.     

A Sculpture Of Human Stone

you are outside
and i watch you,

this glass wall
between us

i make it. I am
safe.

the heart screams
in silence.

unknown by you
i bleed.

this is the best
arrangement that nature
has designed for us

i only have to watch you
no amount of touch from my hands
can make you alive

  3199.     

A SCULPTURE OF THE LIVING

from the mountains of
Antulanga
where even horses
have a hard time
climbing the
steep cliffs,

you are finally
transported to a museum
and frozen

you were not
given a seat
so you do
what you do usually
do
when you
were on a hill
waiting for
no one
putting your hands
above your hair
and looking at
the ants

i had wrinkles on
my forehead
as though the sun
is too strong
to my eyes

i can't say what
i feel but this
i am too certain

i have to talk to
the curator of the museum
if i have to bribe him
i have to
if my diplomacy does not
work at all
if my influence in society
fails

You must be returned
to where you belong
You must live
You must.

  3200.     

a seagull flying on a dimming horizon

just that, what do you have to say more about it
just that

a white seagull flying towards a dimming horizon
a ship sailing away

the sun receding towards the other side
deep down the sea and then gone

just that, do not ever say that the seagull is heading home or running away
that is not so, there is no basis for such a personal conclusion
or just another imagination of your own loneliness by
association of that

white seagull flying towards a certain darkness
the ship turning to a dot dissolving on a horizontal line in front of you.
