Treasure Island

Poetheart (back)

(05/23/1960 / Rio de Janeiro)

Love of miles and miles


I traced thin lines in a sea map

measuring
the distance between north and south
in coloured stains on a table
I drowned

~the distance~
oh! infamous! falls asleep on me

i am yellow you blue
on this sea chart called
love of miles and miles
S
the geography is on my heart
the stones, the sand, the ocean
all trembling together

~in my tiny heart~

can you hear the sound?
tin tin tin
~tinkling~

with my hands i created a wave

to suck me violently

a new route by reach you
had to

is there where the journey depart~
so sorry - was a revolted sea-

i sank there

and all that was rested on me
sank also

i become a woman in blue again
taking all to the deep

my love, my breast, my last breath....
and one tiny heart
to the bottom

    Colored lines on cartographic ocean charts;
    They keep us apart;
    I dare rip up the maps
    Calling it a mishap
    Or some such breach of truth:
    This is a wonderful poem, forsooth! (Report) Reply

    distance feels in kilometers,
    oceans and seas make barricades
    mountains and valleys block your journey
    only in earth but in mind the same second. (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
