With Alessandra, by pd Lyons


With Alessandra

 

With Alessandra

time travels softly

 

across the river
sun pours

volcanoes of night
reversed

suck away the day

ghosts rise hungry
 clean olive scented bones

abandoned in another sleepless night

along this land of green dreams

 

the river birds of Aswan

~

naked
now awake
arching stretch
her champagne breasts
as far as the eye can see
waiting for secrets

In 1985 I had the great good fortune to spend a few weeks in Egypt. Cairo by boat down to Aswan almost into the Sudan. It was the most beautiful evocative romantic haunted country I ever visited.

Lion head
Woman’s body
Left-handed Ankh

The preventative medicine of virginity

Q: How long is it from Cairo to New York City?
A: Forever.

After another sleepless night with Alessandra
Giza looks a lot like rain.
