(After the Painting: Claro de luna by
Efrain Rodriguez Rios/b.20MAR46, Caracas, Venezuela)

How far away the night! Claro de Luna light.
Now gone from Earth gone south

From fire into your mouth.
Your face                               your flood
Your kiss                               my blood
Queen of my heart:Why must we part?
For Hell defines                    Your eyes in mine
Then lovers dirge                 ‘Til stones emerge
& in the silence of her tale
A thunder through the bloody trail
The dead lay down but not for long
A single star; a longing song
How far away the night!
