Daniel Oliveira


Exhale


Eternal
Shredding through the hands of fate
The waking strand of light
Subtle, evoking
The thoughts of my
Last contempt
Searching for
Eluded memories
Faded and relieved
Curled hands
Crippled hands
Long cold fingers
Running through fears
Holding eons captive
And the light
The empty light
Cherished
By the slumber
Of so many
Startled in the hands of
Fates
Eternally.

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
