Author'd Night

by Maria Massarella

when the elusiveness of the unwritten
will grace me with eloquence nouvelle
constellations will zodiac skies where 
nascent poetry scintillates asparkle

until then I acquiesce acknowledging
the greatest poems are destined to remain
unwritten there where they presence the
spaces between a heartbeat and a breath
