Eyewear is very pleased to welcome Barbara DeCesare (pictued above) this wintry Friday. Her poems have appeared in Poetry, Alaska Quarterly Review, Gargoyle, and many others.
Dreamhouse, a musical based on her work, ran in Midtown International Theatre Festival in New York City.
Love breaks the boundaries
of not just your ridiculous
punch-line of a heart
but truth and time,
washes up on shore and spills
her rusty hooks to you,
her mouth frothing over
with fish stories
maybe you get the flash
of a fin,
a glint of bead on the surface
when the surface is enough
to make you fall in.
I knew this girl,
until winter fooled me,
took her back
when sea horses came
to the bedroom window.
by Barbara DeCesare
