To Andrea Bocelli: A Valentine

BEANERY ONLINE LITERARY MAGAZINE

TO ANDREA BOCELLI: A VALENTINE

Joanne McGough

My Tuscan tenor,

                  My glorious man.

I see your image, hear your voice

                  And catch my breath ‘ere I drown in both.

Abandoning all pride

                 I succumb to your manifest maleness

                 And curl into my wombchair.

                 Its arms enfold me.

                 I pretend they’re yours.

You sing “Reste qui con me” and I promise to.

                 No fickle lover, I.

                 Sing “Mille Lune, Mille Onde” and I’m your slave.

The sweet vibrato, tender timbre of you voice,

                Capture me,

                Hold me spellbound,

                My trembling heart yearns for you,

                My dream lover.

Oh Andrea! Share my pillow!

                Sing softly,

                Let your lips brush against my ear.

I promise—

                I’ll treat you the way you should be treated.
