The Maynard
Spring 2014

Lora Tomas


in Dubrovnik, before leaving for Delhi

Clamour of the swifts
Above Villa Sheherezade
Outlining circles
Before their flight to Africa
Over this blue dome
That already evokes the East.

We dive into the cold and darkened sea.
The sky is of orange and pink.
In the City, along the walls,
Rows of soft lights appear.
