There is no difference
         between a
                    shattered wing and a burning strip of lace

Like them, love:
translate faraway lands
that we have never left.

Your hand is in my hand
like a long knife of grass  

and what can’t be compared
we’ll keep under our nails

I am working with gauze
and you    vanishing wound

Fleeing will be my home
trembling fortress at once

and stubborn prisoner:   
a well   chapel   a barn

I’m the top of the page
the folding of the sky

corner of your table
where nothing and no one

nothing can be written
well  still I    have my shadow

at once trembling fortress
and stubborn prisoner

for one no longer knows
which one will be the face

the face of emptiness
and the face of the whole

but one knows the shiver
and the burning caress

caress of the other
there lies my beautiful 


trembling faith 

in you.

I wish 
to celebrate
so many so many of them

oh beautiful
and past summers

and still wish 
to embrace 

how vibrant 
this one is

although softly dying 

and sing

the many ones with you to come

But maybe  should I decide 

once    once and for all 

that our summers never die

No they make us

° since each year
with them we are reborn

they make us  
a little eternal.
