Thursday, May 28, 2009: On the Street…Write On!, Milano

Balcony and fire escape are equally romantic:
One a deck for declaring devotion,
The other a ladder for fleeing flame
Or lover. Each is an eye fringed with
Wrought iron, an escape route, a treacherous
Way to climb back in.

  1. hmmmm. I had to think about this one.

    Balconies are now (in my tiny little opinion) so classic, so symbolic and iconic of romance so as make their romance somewhat obsolete, or 'taken'. Escape/Exits on the other hand. To climb into someone's heart through the back door, them unknowing until suddenly their pulse is in their throat and their life is guided by unseen love... now that is something to mull over...

    Thanks for making me ponder it all...
