Mihaela Cristescu

A certain date
will cut the day in tiny pieces
when every hologram
is worth a life.

That is the proof
of an incredible blind street:
a house with
its lights on.

A gift
is a dress
with smile pockets
waiting to be discovered and used
by its art master.

While dancing
the garden became
friendly engaged
with their shoes,
counting the syllables
of its silent growth.
