Tree of Words


2. Your Naked Body

Your naked body

is the constellation of a sky

I will never see,

the fruit of the ocean and the moon

that my shipwrecked hands

will never seize,

the earth of continents

whose harvest I will never taste.

Yet I know

that were you lie,


there are not and will never be

days, or nights,

but only the caress of your skin,


like the eye of the storm,

like the calm before dawn,

like ebb in the dead of night.

Your naked body,

fruit of snowstorm and the sun,

an island of tempests

that the magus’s veil
