Poetry Pause: Diana Manole — Lovers

Poem Author: Diana Manole Poem title: Lovers Poem: We walk at a distance—  actors not knowing what to do with our hands.  The silence of dioecious plants.   “You’re a suspect,” you warn me.  And so I am: a woman.                   “See me, please!” End of poem.  Credits: Copyright © Diana Manole  Diana Manole is an award-winning writer, translator, and scholar.
