Half A Song - Poem by Vinko Kalinic

I woke up this morning with half a song in my head
I remember, I dreamt about you - yes, those were your lips
and hands! and nose! and ear! - and I could write a song
some absolutely dreadful song, decent and passionate
let's say, about a man who died in his dream, while kissing you
but I don't know how to transfuse your eyes into words,
those enticing eyes which bisect me in two all over again,
to a me that would die for them
and to a me that would die without them
- those eyes, in front of which no song
will ever be sung till the end
