venice

I am writing you from a city half immersed in a dream, feigning forgotten.
Marco….
Carnivalesque and seductive. Intrigue hidden behind masks. Dances of death.
Marco….
The cleaning women wearing mystery in layers, dark as mascara.
The gondoliers and their stories passed down with each pull and twist, thrust and turn.
Row after row.
Polo….
All this turning water, and still the unquenchable thirst.
