How? – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon


“I’ve always believed in savouring the moments.” Anna Godbersen

When a robe falls,
how is time measured?
In ampules of love or a 
quickening of the heart
that flickers the flame of 
expectation whispered in 
the french way like silken
chocolate on a summers day
when it always leaves just a
trace of memory that 
flavours fire, yes
exactly like that.
