The key word in the sonata
Is the final estàtico.
The day’s summit comes
After ‘good morning’ puzzles –
Crescent-shaped hopes
Looking like croissants,
Afternoon doubts piled as ‘drafts’,
Bites of hyenas,
Online intoxications,
Burning kisses, love-making
And finally,
The all-encompassing act
Of the sunset,
The ‘warmest’ part
In this 24-hour cantata –
Feels like a palm
Gently enfolding the cold body
Of the North Sea.
