Waters to cross, saliva and the sea,
phrases floating as tongue’s steerage,
cultures and language admitted and
passed
through the registry of my mouth

ISBN 1-893068-05-6

21 Pages

With many styles–poetry and prose–through many cities, this is the story of a relationship and self awareness.

From Carl Chronicles

Dining in Yellow

Country French
walking these damn rues
of the Marais
Carl eternally indecisive,
looking for that perfect
yellow room with blue-white china
and a warm hearth
where I could roll up my sleeves,
play Maman, to his little
Carl Louis and serve mussels
a la Greque–
and he still hasn’t said five damn
words
in French!

Inky Star

Author: David Quintavalle
ISBN 1-893068-01-3

A very personal collection of poems covering childhood, solitutde and loss.

From Inky Star

L’Horloge D’Orsay

The great clock is before me
but I am behind it, inside;
our faces are reversed and the long steel
hands
grind backwards each minute.

Behind me a tall cream sail,
cut down its center,
stretches to ease the glare of time.
There is no wind within the clock to
send us back.

Through the clock lie the Seine, the
Louvre
and much further, edged by the clock’s
frame,
the Basilica of Sacre Coeur.
The white marble balzes in the light;
the same light
The stings my eyes,
that stills my sails.
