Personne/Persona


I'm afraid of not being interested in anything
Or in anybody
I won't go complaining even to you
Beautiful person
You who I love, who I'll love, who I loved
More than anybody
You who acts like you don't know
Better than anybody

No I never should have brought my hand against
Your person
I should have controlled myself, been more sure
Of my person
Who do you take me for, no I won't say
Anything to anybody
Believe me I'll make you look like a lo-
vable person
Of course, if I tell you all this I don't want to
Hurt anybody
These are the couple of truths that don't
Hurt anybody
Maybe I should have told you them in the third
person
I realize that I'm quite clumsy
With my person

Never will I love as I loved
My belladona
Yes you cost me the eyes in my head, but
I pardon you
I don't owe and I don't think I've ever owed
Anything to anybody
Never have I gotten along so well
Except for with nobody

-Serge Gainsbourg

Norwegian Blue (unfinished)


No mixed coral nor glass
echoes etched into cold blood
hieroglyphs


holds in its prism
no hope today

that blur of blue;
an explosion of swallows
--the mistranslation
of our bodies, skeletal fortresses

of a gray ambergris
calcified deep in

the snow--

these personal hazards
cling to the
hypothermic belly

so sweetly

in a necessitous grasp
of poverty
