LoveWe hear the revelry.
We're shouting in the city silence,
In that crystal storm of dainty white,
We're surrounded by millions yet alone.
Flashing, twinkling brilliance of the Christmas lights
In the plaza.
Overhead the trains rumble,
Carrying citizens to their homes
But we aren't citizens, no.
For we dwell in the air,
Between the glassy steel
And the painted concrete below.
Stark whiteness is this background, but it cannot touch my heart
When I behold you.
Champagne radiance is your aura; one that L 'Oreal could never impart.
Stolen moments with you;
Kisses in the foyer, in front of the mirror

You drew out my promise like a gleaming sword of valor,
Brandished for all to see by the confident soldier,
"I love you."

You will find that in Lucca
the daisy chains forge fire
in side streets and back alleys.
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
