Is It So ? Can It Be ?

Is it so ?
In Neruda’s city
Our Retiro
Our city of glass floors
Where we walked arm in arm
shoulders brushing….almost kissing actually
Cafe y Te
Steers, horses, people walking
as if from another time

Is it so ?
In that moment of joy ?
That burst of light you shared
This destruction began ?

Lucifer – most beautiful of all angels
Judas – most beloved of his disciples
Both of you would understand
Without you – both –
agents of destruction
there would be no love

As Silvio sings
The problem, sir, is to disseminate love
Nurture beauty

So….
is it ?
Beauty
Kindness
Love
Shared together, in secret,
and now ?
What is left ?
Houses, buildings collapse
Our love destroyed
All destroyed

How ?
From such beauty
such love,
all that remains is loss
destruction
How ?
