Reading – Marietta Calvanico


for C.

Let’s not compare losses
I will come to you
with my empty hands
heart line
head line
life line

here are my empty hands
waiting to be full
waiting for you to fill them
fate line
our empty hands

Marietta Calvanico lives in Staten Island, NY.  After spending a bit more than two decades in advertising/marketing, she now works with her architect husband and has been able to devote more time to writing and music.  Her poetry, short fiction and non-fiction have appeared in print publications and on line.
