Go figure

Painting by Margarida Cepêda

The moment was kind,
an unexpected masterpiece
hanging on my iris, invading
my careless retina in the curves
of a hoarse morning; what is it?

My skin can remember
a silent instantaneous bliss
washing the hall and
the tired books on the desk;
a risk my heart couldn't
countenance. What is it?

My something dragged
its sleeves and climbed
the barbed-wire fence
around my body,
catching miracles,
perpetuating that now
as the seconds bent
their knees. What is it?

I felt it...I still feel it...
