Joseph Salvatore Aversano



Four Poems


the small rounded
hill crowned

by the village saint's
tomb

with its pyramidal
Seljuk dome;

and the marker stones
of villagers

interred in the
slopes

a little closer to
the saint

than wide heaven


   ф


into the
curl of

the wave
an old

oil painted
dark an

old oil
painted

dread no
more


   ф


the horizon
jagged w/

an island
added

for interest
one can

just about
make it out

if not
too humid

if even
there


   ф


as far as the blue wall of island across
a leafed citrus
                      orchard
                                  sea


so what boat would one need
to cross it

                         if this
