Gabriela Duricova

(22.5.1984 / Bratislava)

Enveloped


I still carry your kiss
Within my palm
The only evidence
You've ever existed

The clothes in the wardrobe
Could very well be
Someone else's
Just like the car

Parked on our driveway;
The golf sticks and fishing rods
And that stupid straw hat I never liked...
Along with the forever muddy boots

It could have been another man
Who pretended
Not to have forgotten
Every other anniversary

Tulip bouquets don't wear name tags
Nor do colognes
But the kiss came from you
Of that I'm sure

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
