Tonight

To Aida, 

Tonight,
I saw Anna Magnani* in my mirror.
She looked tired, her gaze a little off.
After a moment
her surprise gave way to a smile,
a radiant smile,
her eyes now
recognizing me as her reflection.
She started to sing with all her heart
about the hardships of being a woman.
But, before leaving,
she laughed
hard
opened mouth.

*Some people in show business were afraid of Anna Magnani. The force that made her not just a great actress, but a sacred monster - her impulsive extremism - was also a cause of upheaval, and those "scenes" calculated to disrupt the orderly recording of designed scenes on to celluloid. To hire Magnani, to be with her in any enterprise, meant, sooner or later, being on the receiving end of her temper, and plates of hot pasta. Just think of the damage she might have done if she'd been unquestionably beautiful, along with everything else. Instead, it was the battle of her existence as an actress and a woman to make any man ignore her roughness, her ugliness even, and see her raw desire.

Eclipse

To the moon:
Hey, you!
Aren't you hiding something?!

Springtime

I should nest on your neck
Lay my eggs
Eat my worms
Sing my songs
And then fly away 
For a while
To return
Empty
Hungry 
But singing fiercely
How much I've missed you!

Going to work


Can you hear the crickets

their song a little softer

muffled by the rain?

Now, the morning is melting the night.

Soon the sun will beat in my veins.

I kiss you goodbye.

You smile in your dreams

lifting me

like a bird that can fly.

Sometimes...

Sometimes
it seems that everyone is leaving you!
And it’s so difficult not to take it personally.
What, so soon?
Didn’t you know how much you mattered?
Have I ever told how much you meant to me?
Didn’t you realize that my mornings and my nights would be changed forever?
Sometimes
it seems that everyone is leaving you
but then it looks like the snow doesn’t fall so hard
and the clouds lift up a bit,
even the darkness is a little brighter.
So many signs that you may not be alone.

Simple direct plainly spoken imagery, and a quiet inside the persona that speaks the truth of its human heart.
