Can be seen from a park bench in Altamira, on the east side
of Plaza Francia, below the fountain coiling stairwell from
the subway entrance, all from memory, as the character
from a 1940s film of Caracas walks beside the saman tree
gnarled, threshold roots along the sidewalk, but now sit
to library rest try reading for the prose compositions afterwards,
a favorite prologue. These trying to be songs under spring branches.
