What Would You Do - Poem by Jose' Antonio Orellana Artolozaga

What would you do—

If I would just look at you
Hold you with my hands,
Hold captive your face,
Look deep into your eyes
Treasure that envelops
The breath of breezes,
Oasis of my restless ways,
Paths without destination
When we are apart.

What would you do
If I would count each pore,
Tiny flower of hair
Sprouting from your skin
Mysterious limpid patch
Laid o’er the fair
Korakuen garden of
Your Eden: terse tissue of
Wonderment clothed in
The transparency of your self-
Conscious, bashful beauty,
Trying so to irritate me
So I won’t look at you so hard.
