This girl I knew.There was this girl I knew,
Her hair all curly and strewn.
On these grounds, she was far from new,
as we all noticed her eyes of such vibrant hue.
Yet to her there was a quiet mien,
one that could never be screened.
Expressions of such silent themes,
to us it might be impossible it seems.
She always had a doll in her hands,
it's hair she could plaid in a matter of ten.
Although she would roam the street weeks on end,
No one ever knew from where she went?
Perhaps, she lived in a place beyond our land,
and left for it only when we were sleeping in our dens.
We could poke,
but she never spoke,
leaving us alone in her mysterious code.
Then one day, she caught me by surprise,

Teenagers intertwine. Tell me,
odd flower, are you still closed?
Here we are colored wax;
the heat of the city melts us.
We run into each other, rhapsody
of pigments. Operas are our specialties.
Open up; feel the reds.
If not, try and see them. There is a place
of deep knife marks, a street
long as midnight
you may learn something there.
Valentina's voice glimmers like red wine.
You may enjoy intoxications. Still,
know alcohol has no story
and will swallow your own.
Find the sign with the wolf on it.
You'll know the place. Epiphanies ring true as church-bells.
Lucca still guides the wanderers
