Scrape its skin
with a water wind
inside the black bitter candy
is a purple icicle
of lavender wine     


WHEN IíM EIGHTEEN                       

Iíll die.

            I will eat
my nipples                                                                                                                     

as cows knit raffia ripples                                                                                                                    

I will climb all horses   
and ride to hell.

But, if the tangerine is bitter                                                                                                              

Iíll return my tongue to its tomb                                                                                                

And be silent

till I reach its ending: Silenceís tail

Then, I will pour blood  
            in a burnt book,     
            till the brooks are bare   
            and the trills are still.

            Next year,                                                                                                                                                    I wonít die again;

            I must have been born again
