by Uriel Tovar

When all the world conspires to praise her
A woman of bronze unhappy
Sleep, sleep
The night coming upon
A blue bird ripped
to a ragged geometry,
by the wing, calculating winds set above
Moon stars
all bigger than biggest
could ever begin to be.

Quite by day
A moon in the afternoon
I was born lonely, but
leave me now and I will
Drop through something
close to water
something heavy, silent
a whisper in a room of talk

It is cold, the white moon
is up
among her scattered stars
how lush, one
dead leaf stirring makes a crash
but soon the sun with milder rays
descends the way pictures
change as pieces fall to the ground.

In April I shall see again
-- In April
