Dessert


Just look how he lives, 
the judges would say 
as they see him sitting 
in a restaurant. 
He never touches; 
conversation abbreviated; 
thinks all the time about souls
but no one feels him;
solitude and light praises, 
acts of presumption and 
expectations about invisible ghosts 
with bodies of distance and dream.
