Requiem

You draw your breath

yearning

a sadness infinite

in its contemplation;

 

I, who embraced death

in dumbfounded rapture

am reborn

in the eternal question

imprisoned in your eyes;

 

Are we to celebrate

this reprieve

relying

on our doomed songs

of desperate desire?

 

Let's be buried together.

 


(from ''Burnt Offerings, 1996)
