Rookie - 30 Points (1969 / Beersheba)

Summer in Rome


By the over flowing Tiber,
Walking slowly,
to the Turtles Fountain.
-

Looking at the Trevi,
Anita,
Is nowhere in sight.
-

The summer rain falls on the Trevi,
Tossing a coin at Oceanus,
Aiming between the eyes.
-

Sweating we arrive
To watch Triton sitting,
Under layers of dirt.
-

I take off my baseball cap,
Four rivers-
A new heaven?
-

Summer rain outside,
Inside Japanese tourists chatting,
In front of a silent Moses.
-

Drying up in the Parthenon,
I tweet on my cell,
What an amazing technology!

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
