Prepositionising

                                                 "grammar poem" by Isaías Carvalho




Sometimes

I feel like being the subject and the object of your syntax,
prepositionising you.
I really could be
                                     
in 
on 
over 
around 
under
above       you. 
below 
behind 
before 
near
after

I keep on wondering what I could do

to,

for,
with,
in and out of you.

It’s just that you’re so far away!

Name, my name: a trace 
in the face of life, 
the face of faith. 
A nearly nothing in utmost shame, 
an abyss for blindness, 
flameless fire in the depth of darkness. 
endless night; name, my name: 
seed of no deed – the shade of love. 

Mind, my mind: insane 
graveyard thought for 
angel, muse and dream. 
I dug the ground of being and I sowed 
many young lost shadows, 
doomful roses bloomed and faded, lonely, 
shy to light, never bright. 
My mind: the shade of life, what life?
