Restless soul, my poor soul,
you should stand poet in me,
like the magician and crystal ball
exploring eternity.

Dreamy heart, my tiny heart,
you should feed the ghost in me
like the puzzle, part by part,
solving eternity.

Shiney eyes, my only eyes,
you should see the child in me
like the universe and blue skies
reaching eternity.

Sensuous being, my lonely being,
you should beat temptation in me
like the sin and apple tree
losing eternity.

by Ana Stjelja

Meditation on a Nutcracker

Ours is bone
theirs is wood.
They made a wooden
case for their pithy
life. Our jelly
life is in a
case of dense
With my hammer
I broke the wood
and took out
the wrinkled
hardened pith
the whole thing
looks like it was
fashioned by
Ours breaks like an
eggshell and our
ameoboid bubbly life

What the Gunmen Said in a Dream

When the gunmen came
they told me now
you live in my heart.
Showed me strange
x-ray pictures of
you. I asked them if
they feed you well
in my heart.

Afternoon of a Faun

I thought my nap
after a long walk in the snow
had propelled me into Monday morning
when it was really only afternoon.

I woke up feeling
how gently time slipped under me.
I was playing Debussy
while I lay here

after a dose of poetry from my magazine.
It was delicious
the soft slippage
of time through my sleep.
