Pictopoem by Tatiana Arsénie and Irina Moga


An arc of chalk drawn on the sidewalk

- a word ring hides inside the outline of

my footfalls –

gates, pilasters supported on murmurs


a sea of walls approaching -


passersby, and I – a

humble star-fish,

inside a whirling universe twisting on

skeins of leaves


and phantoms of the sun.

This pictopoem was originally published in dANDelion Magazine Volume 36, issue i/ii and is part of the book "Pictopoems of Berlin".
