Amazon River

Why, State, your eyes don’t see the Amazon River?

Why the horsemen of interests invaded in the night?
Their bullet entered Tsiko’s chest but invades your own.

Aphrodite And Li Bai

The wine with its grace
purifies my grief.

from the Stymphalides Fowls, you wanted other things.

highly recommended, I joined the crew of Maggelan
on the way to Mollucs, towards the target of spice.

Your Name

In my short coffee-pot
the small bubbles
emitting vapour
whisper your name.
