Modern Love Lxxxiii (Love As Grand As Memory) - Poem by Liberatore Suffoletta

Modern Love LXXXIII

“My love, princess, is grander than
the tallest skyscraper of this town,
like the cross atop that church
it anchors its cross in the blue sky.”
“Tell me, my love, is there another
love higher throughout the world.”
”Your love is only, so grand,
dearest,
in your memory”


in shade of the bedroom shadows,
in the centerpiece, rosy alive bed
two lover’s desire tightens a knot
of plum mouths; chest against chest,
legs under legs, arched backs.
Navigating a strait ever narrower
As delirious fingers dance a ballet
of pirouetting breaths in fleeting instants
Until the knot becomes freely undone
At last loosened among twisted sheets,
lost pillows and tossed away clothing
pale blushing faces with stiffening hair
An indifferent word, a slight thirst
A tiny hunger, a soft sadness, a small death
In the afterglow, an innocent pure desire
gives birth to a vague wandering smell
