The Letter

I’m writing to you right now
and I see myself in the future
thinking about the present and
trying to remember your name.

The past is bright as an envelope.

And as if my right hand is divinely
directed I point at the wrinkled
mirror as I continue to write with
my left one.

Through Hell

Once I looked at your face
through my fingers as if I was watching
a horror movie as a child

Many blizzards passed from that moment
until now

like a water snake

Virgil, tell me when will this path

Now. And


It’s all the same

From the beginning
of everything
it’s all the same
the trees the mountains
the chemical compounds
the wind the water—

I am spending the night
with her in her somewhere
and you

Nobody can take that away from us

My name is
legion of us
