Sans Lucia (1999)

from Voices From a Broken Window by Jon Hughes



Sans Lucia

Let’s go make some steak and eggs
And let’s sit in a soundproof room,
Watch our tired, inky shadows climb
All over the wallpaper like sea crabs, black and silver,
Your fingers like scissors.
Let’s share regrets for the things we’ve done
In the empty elevator shine
Along your painted figure’s swoon
Down under surface shadows like a goddess of the ocean
In an empty coral mountain.

Here I write and there you are,
Lucia, my darling, in your inky black stockings,
I draw you on paper.


from Voices From a Broken Window, released July 2, 2009
