Breeze for your sail


by Claudia Serea

Tonight, the world is an abandoned lot


enclosed by chain link fences,
and us, trapped,

two helpless birds,


two fish caught in nets,

two knotted napkins.

But I’ll say to you,


Hang on, love,


hang on.

Don’t raise your white flags yet.


Don’t surrender.
I’m sending you


a breeze for your sail,


sweet wind of faith.
I’ll blow a lock of hair


off your pale forehead
and sing to you


from far away.
Don’t give up, mi amor.
Together, we’ll hang on


the wires of the world.
We’ll billow, sway,


and flutter.
Soon, the fence will crumble


and we’ll dance.
