Against wasting your palms, ingesting detergent,
earthquakes, baldness, divorce, against

Against lupus and complaints, mendacity stranded among nations,

that by no means arrive

Against those talismans opposed to lightning;

The echo has a metal ladder, transparency, moisture That fills with those who go up it to their dawn… and those Who come down to their graves through the holes in space… Take me with you to my language! I said: What benefits people is what dwells on the words of the poem, While drums float like foam on their skins And my cell has widened, in the echo, to became a balcony Like the dress of the girl who accompanied me in vain To the balconies of the train, and who said: My father Does not like you.
And intimidated by his own soul: 23 There is no I now, but she is now in me. No she, but I am in her fragility. How I fear For my dream, lest it see a dream that is not she at The end of this song… * No one has come Perhaps the strangers have missed the way To the strangers’ walk! 24 Raven’s Ink You have a retreat in the solitude of the carob trees, O dark-voiced sunset bells! What Do they want from you now? You sought Adam’s garden, so that the sullen killer might conceal his brother, And were locked up in yourself When the dead man was opened up at his large And you took yourself off to your own affairs: as absence takes itself off To its own many preoccupation.
The first of The windows leans out towards the butterflies… blue… Red. I know the line of clouds, and at which Well the village women will wait in summer. I know What the dove says as it lays its eggs on the muzzle Of the rifle. I know who opens the door to the jasmine Which opens our dreams in to the evening’s guests. * The strangers’ carriage has not yet arrived * No one has come. So leave me there, just as You leave greeting at the door of the house. For me Or for another, and pay no attention to who will hear it First.
