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



in the same shades

of its petrified voyeurs






do you not realise

that your lack of thirst


is closely connected

with your painted tears ?
