Poem by Angéline Neveu


I  am faxing you the rain

Blues on the corner of my heart
I am faxing you the rain

It is raining gray
A foretaste
Of midnight

I am faxing you my tears
Perfumed with ginger

I am faxing you my weeping
Scented
With quarters of an hour

Answer me

Angéline Neveu, from the anthology Éclat redoublé; translated by Robert Smith

Original French version:

Je te faxe la pluie

Blues au coin de mon cœur
Je te faxe la pluie

Il pleut gris
Un avant-goût
De minuit

Je te faxe mes larmes
Au parfum de gingembre

Je te faxe mes pleurs
Aux senteurs
De quarts d’heure
