Intimate Letters

I made the earth tremble for him.

I inspired these letters in him,
so passionately written
that the notes struck
the staves like a shower of sparks.

Only through me did
these melodies rise above
the log of his memory and
kindle, the wind in the curtains,
starlings churning into an elm
on a square.

What must there not
have been between us! What a woman
I must be!
