Full Moon

Can you see the little light on the roof,

Wandering aimlessly, like the smoke

Of a cigar

/

Looking at you, unreachably high

Peacefully bright,

Ineffably far?

/

Do you hear the private words, slipping from

The cold lips, which taste of quiet,

And of burning Earth?

/

Can you see through the dark night of one star

The pale face, which, maybe, half-mirrors

Yours?

/

Do you recognize the slow, doubtful steps

Of someone, whom others wrongly

Think strong,

/

You, who’ve seen this figure painfully walk

On her own through one too many

A night?

/

Do you look down on her ridiculous dreams,

On her memories, her hopes

And her fears?

/

Will you watch over the people she loves,

If her light, lost in white snows,

Disappears?

/

Tell me not that you are

But a soulless star,

Oh, Full Moon,

/

Blind and deaf

To little lights

On dark roofs
