The poem you sang from the shore
of the lake of flowers
carrying your beloved on a boat
decorated with stars
that never stopped blinking

plays still across the seven seas
for my hungry ears
that have been waiting
since my thousand lives
to listen to a prayer

of a naked mystic woman
singing the same hymns
i design for you today.
