Nude Descending A Staircase - Poem by Adnana Zeljkovic

Two places you made inseparable:
Tate Gallery, where we met
and Hyde Park, where we kissed.

Between them
You walked me home.

The words
we are not compatible
are still descending from your lips
as Nude Descending a Staircase
by Marcel Duchamp,
sealed by your kiss on my forehead –
a pinned butterfly.

    a replica of soul to words
    Between them
    You walked me home.

    The words
    we are not compatible
    are still descending from your lips
    as Nude Descending a Staircase
    by Marcel Duchamp,
    sealed by your kiss on my forehead –
    good wishes
