i’ll walk you up the aventine

i’ll walk you to the top of the aventine
where we’ll enter the orange tree garden
to see rome arranged before us
a river of civilization, history in its heartbeats
we’ll perch on a park bench where we will adopt
the chronicled poses of lovers past, present, and future
we will embrace the notion of improbability
and allow chance to have its way with us
santa sabina will reassure us with her dark chill
that following your faith may never be simple
but evading destiny is more difficult still
