descent

     Soundless, the sun clock’s shadow trembles.
     You sneak out of house, driven by something
     more peculiar than a lack of inspiration. It might be
     unbearable shame, tearing you apart every time
     you wish to shout your poems to the friends across the street.
     Or it’s something earthier, sheer hunger, perhaps.
     Just like insects’ tentacles do, your eyes warily feel
     the world, barely touching the indifferent horizon.
     For a second, closing the gate behind, you forget
     the exhausted pattern of your scarcely woven letters:
     a long-gone summer, a ripened day, the balance of elements,
     the absent sea whose livid atoms, brought by a breeze
     through curtains of times, decompose in your mind
     to the rhythm of your breathing and leave behind
     brittle husks of desire, pebbles of a few survived loves,
     bloodless poetry craving for the sunlight of precious late insights.
     You descend to a deserted beach and, as if for the first time,
     roll a shell in your hands, taste a fig, take off your shoes.
