when indigo is a sky place
with strong legs
of soft marble
the trees are dark angels
speaking their wind

I listen in my boy skin
to the lovely vulgar
of their suggestions
then I realize they are one
and always have been

and that the man of me
outgrew the overalls
of my innocent a year ago
before the dreams
that introduced me

to something down under
my imagination
where the dark water waits
for a stranger to drink
and for an angel

to speak of her passed lovers

boys get boring after they blow in and out
of town, lend me your man a while, and
let my indigo wrap you in deep purple

O wow D, this moved me.  Waiting for an angel to speak...
there is just something so beautifully sad in that, but sooo lovely.
I dunno...maybe it's just me this morning,
but I really love this.  Have a safe and happy holiday.

I just "accidentally" came across this masterpiece of yours, dear D.! You are so missed here! This is of more than ten years ago, a decade ... and the poem is as uniquely powerful as if it had been written now and  it will survive us all.

Love,
Margherita
