Adriano Nunes: "June" - to Marjorie Perloff

"June" - to Marjorie Perloff

For Juno,
It's June,
Sixth month.
Not for
The Ancient
Greeks that
If could
They would
Have written
Like this:

The month of
The Wife
Of Zeus,
Of Hera.
In the
North, Summer
It shelters.
High heat
And slender
Tan bodies.

Wild Wishes,
In the south,
Chill Winter,
With winds
And rain
Stronger than
Those of
The north.
All bodies

Are dressed.
Is what
It seems,
Isn't it?
Like Hera’s
Half of
A year.
