the patient Poetry di morendi

should be something connected with fear

 

but its smell

is familiar     and shaped

like the flower child

of Abraham

 

the one whos throat was not cut over

but still died

 

leaving the vase

to hold nothing but brownish knuckles

 

later described

on countless papyrus and canvas

 

still

in the same shades

of its petrified voyeurs

 

yes

 

you

 

do you not realise

that your lack of thirst

 

is closely connected

with your painted tears ?
