New York Jolly-Boat Time

When the urge takes you 
to move forward in you

Touch of Waves 
Under your feet 
Wind's flavor 
On your nonchalant neck 

Straightening of the spine 
To the four winds 
Trembling sensations 
of a torrid sunset 

Sweet music of the heart 
that allows the lovers
to find themselves for a moment 
in the shimmering flames 
of their newborn present
