Lavender Summer Dress
When I see you
In your lavender summer dress
Along a sun-brilliant and rainless avenue,
It's like a divine revelation
Of an exquisite design.
How many hours and artisanal techniques
Did it require of God to fashion
The loveliness of your eyes?
Can I enter the world
Of your luxurious perfume
And the rarified air of your breath
Or must I linger outside your gate?
This obsession with your essence
Has left me lonely in this city of broken dreams,
But I can no longer find any meaning
That is divorced from your existence.
