poems inspired by the work of Mihai Eminescu
Un singur dorI have a singer’s door.Afloat, let me bemoored in margarine.I mean, on the edgeof the sea. This one:Cer senin. Relax,I knitted a bedfrom young branches.Ten thousandtrees fallin my throat:do they makeor break?Simon Cowellcovers his earsat the thought of my heart.I know we all groanwhen the sea sings.I will be earthin my solitude.
