I repeat the inexorable sagacity of the psalms
and I love the open gates in the face of the water’s strength
I try to understand my time
and the weightless intent of the poem
I have no other eyes or hands
you no longer show me the images
but I can see the ivies shaping their sombre
lips through interjection and breadth
