And Orpheus Died

And Orpheus Died

 

Jakarta, 13.08.16

and Orpheus died singing Eurydice’s name,
and in the meantime I sat here typing to the void
with the thought of you
for all the Waltz of the Flowers you did to my heart
for all the dream a little dream of me
for all the inside jokes and the nicknames
and us, maybe, with an ellipsis—

but I turned around too soon

and I lost you
