The Lovers’ Walk

SAint Anthony Abbo and Sain Bernardino da Siena, Jagop Bellin, 1460

[St Anthony Abbo and St Anthony Bernadino da Siena, 1460]

The Lovers’ Walk

They walk together across the bridge

and up the cement stairs

familiar vines sprout

around their shoulders

a vine-laden trellis wall

shuns the flutter of noise

they pass through

they bump and yield and bump and yield

breathing full but fragile

onto each other’s faces

rich and lung-wet
