The Cut Cord of Love


Copyright © Adel Gorgy 2015





On Sundays, we go to attend to his grave:

The large, paper cornet foaming with flowers;

And our eyes as dry as the surrounding stones.

His smile and small darkness are vinegar

Memories stinging the cut cord of our living love.

His white cross stabs the formal grass. His photos,

Wordless elegies, inhabit my wallet.
