Two Poems by Elizabeth Moura


Man screams in a dark theater

in a dark theater

a man

puts his hand

on my knee

on my thigh

I gently

cover his hand with mine

and snap his fingers back

until they crack

the apology

so sorry

said he

to her

as if

he could

return

what he

had taken

out of

her life
