and how do i say

how do i say this –

how do i say this –
these opening chords have
shipwrecked my first
city refuge, the entire
studio rests teeter-
tottering between
april and may,
suspended
in the glow
of a single bulb
and you, playing
Durango Kid
on my speakers,
hardwood floors
chasing those
arpeggios, letting
the tea boil over –
everywhere i am,
these waves push
me back

you are teaching me

you are teaching me
to wrap my
listening around
Toninho Horta’s broken
voice
, a funny
valentine of sorts –
no agenda, no other
consideration, but
a weakness for
amar como te amo
.
