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.
