A weekly video reading of poetry by the poet.

Improvisation
by Camillo DiMaria

Fire-escape
would like to be a piano
that doesn’t snap
from its attachment
to the building’s side,
and drop
three stories down
to shatter
on the sidewalk.
 
The fire-escape
desires to be piano
inside, held by the walls
and rug
without being cemented,
the one, dappled by guests
or a burglar slipping
through the window.
 
Piano in the living room
wishes to be a sofa
for the cats blurring throughout
the apartment,
who appear to be
their wily selves, nestled
against her thighs.
 
Sofa dreamed of being
a woman dreaming
of making love and of being
made love to…when the rooftops
of the city were men
that became a field.
