“Cherry Trees” (2018) – Chapbook – Gloria Mannazzu – 10/15


I would like
you to be the one
who would design
a common path.

I have built
a place
where you will find me.

All of my own creations
pieces of my intentions
there is space for you.
There is room, you can stay.

I would like
to receive a welcoming embrace
and to listen:
“You have always been in my mind”.
“I want to see you every day”
“I want to get to know you”.
