shiva’s tears


shiva’s tears

“…Y yo transmitiré sin decir nada…”*

-Pablo Neruda

to that lover listening yet listens not

tears pelt unfallen falling fallen cold

amidst this autumn dawning yet dawns not

leaves falling not unalone still not gold

one hart in a bone cage beauty forgot

persistently refilling our clay cups

with these fragments of thunder truth forgot

insistently raindrops crushing hyssops

grief gathering sorrow without remorse

ice rumbling grumbles into rising seas

bitterness compounding lacking discourse

darkness doubles down amidst starry pleas

to that moon gathering tears thundering not

this flesh being alone howls to be forgot

so this beloved chants transmitting nothing

mark emmanuel christopher valentine
