An Ode To Parting


You offered me fleetingly
your friendship
your inexhaustible eyes
your sweet smile
which tasted like honey on my lips

the cold stones of heaven
a mirror full of the glass wings of light
and your fires sinking in the sea
like a wound I have bathed

I am grateful, at least, for having bled like this.

And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
