Silences/XIX

Adul de Leon, actress, is dead.  She
who had worn all masks of love & evil,
must have known the final word of it all:
there is love in hate in every act
there is hurt in pleasure in every gesture
& in these times of plagues & criminals:
Love among men is also most venerable
Love among women is also most pure
Love among murderers is also most possible—
Though authorial lines had already uttered it all
for her who walked the knives of her cancerous noon
fata morgana crossing the stage of her Acheron
her lion of silence could have roared it all:
If there is evil, there must also be good
O the consolate lights all lovers must choose!
