Dan Corjescu: Three Poems

Lost Brother
Once I called you “brother”
and this stayed for a long time
But your strong legs
lay like broken brass logs
awkward upon the asphalt
A rusty hatchet
buried deep in the old heart
of another

The 5th
It is said that I should unsay you
that I deny the movements
just so
to wrap up a whole modern city
in an unread newspaper
and love
watch it
leave it
contort down
the long black sleeve of 5th avenue

I don’t know if I could uncertain myself
to your exasperating sense of
you hold all the black petals
red palms of night
