ANOTHER  COUNTRY

 

I’ve travelled this far

to find you’ve moved to

another country

I’m calling

 

across canyons

and valleys, mountain ridges

and the wide expanses

of the Abruzzi

 

and you are not here

but far away

pondering the dregs

of your glass

 

asking the padrone

for another

rolling your dubious cigarettes

your ear  open

 

to demons

in a place too far

to reach

though we shout loud enough.
