a lifetime
in that bated breath ...
does it move,
this wisp of cotton
in my baby's nose?

  did mom know
my first love
wasn’t her …
licked my face

    she kisses me
with the look in her eyes
the distance
between our shadows
becoming shorter

who is it
that makes her
sing that way
the romanian girl
serving coffee at dawn

  the street
where she used to live
still smells
of bread and cream cakes
in her dreams

    far from home
I dream only of music …
this land
where water tumbles
from the mountain’s stony heart
