Daniela Elza’s Poetry

their thin mouths

 
I slip through time sideways
straightening up                   the dark.
 
a note           a kiss               a whisper—
this ache that rises                     curves
and arcs                         to meet you.
 
the rain on my patio today
and the jackhammer across the street
compete             with the memory of you.
 
you are a blessing   (not in disguise).
I trace the brief etymology of us
and words capsize.
 
naked in my dream                 all night
this way and that               your bare chest
 
and I           awaken to        an empty bed
drowning       in a line of words.
 
I slip through their thin mouths.
like button holes
they     fasten me to you.

 

Daniela Elza is a free range, non-medicated poet and scholar who is currently falling in love with trees.
