another poem, from December 2006

I saw the Ice-Queen cream

Maybe I shouldn’t tell
how the reserve softened
the glacial gaze trembled.

Did anyone see me see?
Like butter in a warm room keeps its corners
until … and puddles all at once.

Such intimacy is painful.
An actor breaks character,
the audience coughs and fidgets.

Through their tears
the fasting faithful see stone madonnas weep,
A miracle of grief.
What Bernini polished in Teresa’s marble face
that moment when stone moans.

The magnet lifts the nail
that magnet lifts another, a chain of nails.
Maybe I shouldn’t tell.

I saw the Ice-Queen cream,
a moment’s quiver of the lip
and fleets set sail
towers burned
orphans cry in the rubble.

Maybe I shouldn’t tell.
