Tomorrow, adagio
poems inspired by the work of Mihai Eminescu
Simina Banu

Un singur dor

I have a singer’s door.
Afloat, let me be
moored in margarine.
I mean, on the edge

of the sea. This one:
Cer senin. Relax,
I knitted a bed
from young branches.

Ten thousand
trees fall
in my throat:
do they make

or break?
Simon Cowell
covers his ears
at the thought of my heart.

I know we all groan
when the sea sings.
I will be earth
in my solitude.
