ATTEMP AT THE ROOM
My friend, look! Like letters in your hand, like
sleep, that dream, I watch you through the opening.
In the first dream - sleeping eyelids, centuries
after - I watch through premonitions, oracles
of the light-world. On these borders - time's
extremities - I am a light-world's eye.
And after? A dream
exists: in tones and shades.
There was - climbing.
There was - bowing
forehead to forehead.
Ahead - your forehead,
brow - a flagrant half-rhyme
in my mouth.
