“Glass” by Takako U. Lento

They were dancing as if

swimming among the rocks.

We stood by the wall,

drinking beer

out of the green-labeled can.

We talked about

shadow plays, operas and

how your friend’s father witnessed

Caruso break a goblet

by his forceful voice.

I laughed,

wishing I could break

the thin but inevitable glass

between me and your world.
