Andan Ozer - AT TIMES EYE-TONGUE

A city in Italy
--Milan
an avenue in Milan
--Via Torino
on the sidewalks of Via Torino
me
alone
I don’t know what time of the night
I still stroll
up and down—down and up…
people
just like me
a pair of ears
a pair of eyes
one nose
one mouth
but
whatever I say – no response
whatever I say – no response
at the corner
a woman stands
alone
my eye
gazes at hers
her eye
gazes at mine
I respond
She responds
We walk…


Andan Ozer
