The Lovers

After the violin snatch the public

they began playing the fingers

one another

until the bottom of the hands

The woman said yes

with a left hand

and a right hand of him is imprisoned

maybe forever.

Joao,

 

I picture two concert violinists -- a man and a woman. Perhaps they are lovers, perhaps their concert is a metaphor for an act of love. As always, I enjoy your sparse, image-rich poems.

Tony has said it all- on the other hand (Good grief where does the grammarian reside?;-) )

After the violin snatch the public

they began playing the fingers

feels awkward- After the violin snatch in public, they play the fingers? Loved the short well imaged form, but my reading skipped, and spun on little details in the flow ;-)

 

Much Grace!

Lovely poem Joao. It gives a scene of sharing rings for marriage.

The violin gives wonderful sound and makes this poem so musical.

 

I love it.
