Two Voices                   Max Wolf Valerio 

 

Sixteen miles

Iron and ice

 

Fourteen roads

Pointing to the distance

 

twelve hours

time bloats in a water glass

 

ten prayers

through the light of a basement on fire

 

eight guitars

the sound is noise and then, it is not

 

6 popsicles

when summer comes, the green girls dance

 

4 calendars

when you wanted to leave, but did not

 

2 planes

the tilting was not reversible, from the longest point that I remember

 

no one was saved                     the clouds hung shawls down
