Three Selected Poems: “Night vision”, “Oberkampf” and “Script #1”

Night vision

Europe, Paris, October 2016
from the collection “Samples” (2016)

Cars speeding down the intersection

splash gold in the headlights,

every time,

glowing droplets against the dark falling too slowly to the ground.

Oberkampf

Oberkampf, Paris, September 2016
from the collection “Samples” (2016)

Dans l’élégante lueur froide

d’une nuit de pluie,

les pavés de rues faufilantes

devenus marbre

reflètent le discours des néons

aux marcheurs couverts et asservis.

Script #1

from the collection « Script » (2014)

A hum in the red sky

terrible sights of deathless tract homes

detached people quiet
around their long dining table
front yards at day
St-Augustine lawn
shivers in silent
madness

he opens the trunk and puts in the bags
curtains stir where
rifts form

always a plot
and a parallel romance

he runs to the cities
he has bigger visions.
