Maria Barbara Korynt


a coolness of fresh water


I am taking the pale cheek out,
not for effect, I am searching for rays.
a skin swelled.

the sun is burning
with the heat,
is threatening with bubbles.

around green.
the sun is already squeezing tears.
on eyes I put leaves.

coolness of fresh water,
is restoring the will to live.
heat is teasing.

    At first I said, Oh, she is an artist, then thought better of it. Whatever this is about it does resonate in one's thoughts.

Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
