A Poem by Inna Dulchevsky

The Day After Day After Day Then Again

Summer runs away
I hunt for its tail
But it slips
I've failed           again

It was not a tail
But veil     of memories
Recall its feelings
Slipped through my fingers
Into a pelagic zone

From fear to love
From love to fear     then back
Sex     no sex      sex    again
Desire and tears
Anger and bliss
Chills visit the tips of my hair

A day-long meditation
Standing ovation for a
Quintet of senses is muted      again

My presence is a slight poetic
Somewhere   nowhere     then back
In the present

Don't let me forget how to breathe
In-and-out     in-and-out        again
Then back


Breathe now
