Ion Corcos


Baking Apple Strudel

I see you in the reflection
of the kitchen window;

through the glass,
trees, leaves falling,
night coming fast.

One day I will not.

Maybe because I will not be here,
or maybe because
waves have washed away
all your footsteps,


when we held hands,

and were happy.
