  1. Some wonderful images in this poem, Ion. I really loved so many lines, especially those about the wild animals at night, the men looking like watermelons, the flying fish and also the last quiet line, “When we talk, only the birds will know. When they come.” You can really feel the exhaustion and anticipation! Congrats!
