The Toy Bear Adorning The Piano - Poem by Liberatore Suffoletta

In the gloom of the stone living room
the oil lamps
disclosed their veiled light
of dawn faded stars...

Feminine shoulders
gathered lightness
from the mirrors

Poisoned-tipped words
sought out
an immature heart

Standing beside the piano
the adolescent
a moon fragment
with wounds for eyes and mouth,

Expert professional eyes
forged ahead meanwhile
in their illicit hunt.

Woman and man...
Woman and man...
Woman and man...

Their whisperings spread
like fungus
in damp jungles

The lone adolescent
stroked the toy bear
adorning the piano

Against his breast now,
the yellow faded bear
wounded, with wool's
the abondoned pathways
of the heart
