HM Goldberg: an arrival

Beauty: we were greeted on the balcony
I couldn’t sleep for Beauty
outside the moonlit hills
the Mediterranean sea
I see it again in the plasticity of the earth
exaggerated moonshine
I drank it in after

after that I could not sleep
I didn’t expect
Amalfi ache
I didn’t expect: Beauty
try to respond and
take it in of that moment
the plasticity of the earth

could not respond
it made you ache
to respond and couldn’t quite
I couldn’t sleep
I couldn’t leave
sheer Beauty you
in the morning

moonshine’s gone
I see it again
the plasticity of the earth
I didn’t expect
moonlit landscape
I drank it

HM Goldberg
