 vanishing point



he would see her passing by

in such a way

that he actually never did see her,

to be sure.


sometimes only the corridor.

empty, useless

in its eternity.


and he would return to his room,

into the company

of the bedside table

the alarm-clock

the tablets he had brought along.


the walking of naked feet

in the distance –

how can one who each night sleeps

in a different city

foretell it?


and once again he would

open the door

but she had already passed on to the other side,

most probably.


and he would look at the lights,

the door numbers,

everything fading into the

pit, as it should be.


and he wondered:

why is reality

so uncannily


why does everything occur

more or less

as it should be?


this was the sole reason

why he moved

from room to room,

using always

only one of the pillows,

unmaking always

only one side of the bed.


in the company of the lamps

on the bedside tables,

and this fog silence

filling the ears

through the night.


and again he would come out

to the doors,

and see her pass by,

but he couldn’t be



so that he could never invite her

to the inside of the poem,

and know for instance

why she dressed in red.


why should it had been decided

a long time ago

that it should be thus,


always an inkling only;


and he would return all over again

to the company of the screen,

where he strove

to reproduce the corridor;


its very persistence.

Reviewed by John Flanagan 3/12/2009
I admire the fluency of expression, the feelings evoked in this surreal world of hope, possibility, instability pitted against permanence and unrequited love. This is very fine indeed.
Reviewed by Karen Palumbo 3/12/2009
This flows so beautifully between reality and non reality...

Be always safe,
