lurks in the darkest

corner of the earth
a match is lit
and it reveals nothing
but a lighter place
till the fire dies

and darkness overwhelms

the space again.

In the brightest spot

in the universe
some ink is spilled
and stains the

whiteness forever.

A glass of wine

half empty means
the flavor's not exquisite
or a glass of wine half full

means there is
a palatte teasing

encounter yet to come.

A bookmark is a

stopping point for boredom
or a precious marker

to return to and re-enter
the fantasy yet finished.

a camera captures

the flaws that nature
hides by the blurring

of human sight
or a camera uncovers

the flawless beauty

that the naked eye is blind to.

A virgin is an unexperienced

and clumsy lover
A virgin is the untouched

paradise that waits a man
who knows just how to bring

the well to overflowing.

a poem is

thought compressed

into orderly lines
or a poem is the free flow

of unspoken emotion that

splashes over one's soul.
