Murano Side Street

near Venice is 
this island

(i'm pleased that
we could go)


glass masters
sell small treasures
in busy storefronts.

an alert salesman
invited us to a
hidden gallery.

murano's secret wonders,
which we loved,

and something about
our appreciation
of these treasures
fed something in him,
and made him happy.


this sidestreet seemed 
to welcome and i had
to stop and look.

and i saw nothing
that was beautiful,
unless i tilted my 
head a certain way.

do as i did,
and tilt your head.
it was so worth it.
just tilt your head.
