Poems

Cataclysm and Songs

Happy what's left of me after I'm gone
If only one of the songs sung
Lives beyond the person singing in me now.
Yet I would not save from the slaughter
A single one of the songs I sang and sing.

Instead from the entrails of oblivion
I would steal the laughter of children
And the age of the proverb.

And so to those who come 
I would offer intact the enigma of light

I would steal the laughter of children
And the age of the proverb.

And so to those who come
I would offer intact the enigma of light
simple hairstyle for medium hair
