#62 Irène or Forbidden Literature

Levity & lemonade
for dinner. What changed
your mind? No matter.
I went along with your
desire to dance. Pushed
the stairway into a corner
of the room to give
us more of it. You
moved around me. I
kept time by ringing out
the rhythm on the bell
balanced above my finger.
Your first steps reiterated
your name. What else
they wrote there
I am not allowed to tell.

#61 The Legend of the Centuries II

The little chair
sits on
the enormous chair

even though
neither chair

is there
for sitting on.

Dwarfed by
la création

the Greeks
the Romans
will conquer.
