THE MOUNTAIN

A Surrenga between Alexis K. Rotella and ai li
Los Gatos, California and London
17 - 22 March 1997

 

 

The mountain takes a deep breath

a dragon hears the virgin in his lair

preserved in lava           menage a trois

time in a nursing home        pre-war

CRIME AND PUNISHMENT        I remember writing it

to organ music           suicide attempt

 

a tear runs down the Madonna's cheek

pearls for rain        by the pig-sty

my fillings turn to gold while I sleep

a spray can of rainbows

inside a cloud           man playing violin
