UNTER DEN LINDEN
Pictopoem by Tatiana Arsénie and Irina Moga
Concave, convex, the angles of the buildings
show me the limits imposed by silence.
I’d like to sketch an edifice, a smile,
a mix of verbs in a shredded architecture
that would advance the contours
of the air.
Branches dissolving into the sky,
lamps on stilts of sleep,
towards which the illumination of the night retreats
voiceless, in neon dreams.
Viewpoints nestle on the ground.
The lazy evening sprawls on a solitary bench
where a heart still beats, alive,
by an oval line.
This pictopoem was originally published in dANDelion Magazine Volume 36, issue i/ii and is part of the book "Pictopoems of Berlin."
