Two poems by German Dario • Empty Mirror

fragrance / credit: emfragrance / credit: em

food

the border is not
a lava vein
the wind
will tell you that

a pencil line
insults
crisp white paper
when used to divide

the border is

a butterfly’s torso

a wave’s dance
as it folds into itself
to begin anew

seeds and scent
come and go

la migra
impotently

looks on

on the threshold of a dream

a child
puts the sky
into a cup
and frees
ladybugs

oxeye daisies
undress
for first
sorrow
