maria negroni/ tr. anne twitty


The characters vanish as if becoming lost in time,
or in themselves.
We see only words flying, pausing, interrupting the equilibrium–quite a feat–of nothingness.
In the wings, if there were light: reflected buildings, a photograph of Jean Harlow.
The melody is invisible.
The white circles of the spotlights do not know
where to rest.
