Love of a Dirt Farmer

How does
the breeze make you new
under the old sun?

How can your perfect blue words shine
from the eyes of your black sea?

How do you turn your body
into morning
in the entranceway’s night?

And the fields and fields of chrysanthemum
dried in the small vase on the table next to you
that would bend to be scented again?

Nothing is beautiful as it was,
but let’s say you’re a breeze
who can fly
while I, like a dirt farmer, waits
for your smile, for instance,
your smile, the rain of it.
