Example text

How long his mouth remained wide open 19 And silent.  Until his tongue regained its use, until it was once more his voice and echo: Father 20 Behind a muslin drape and the boy buzzing in his head.  Like fragments of heart rubbing his temples and not always only 22 When an uninvited guest came by.  Or when playing with his grandson: a splendid soap bubble with all the rainbow colors about to burst on the windowscreen Or then at once this buzzing in his head! 23 Luckily, the pain vanishes just as it comes.

Praise man. Page 28 From Balm (1971) With the Rain I'll still walk with the rain open and dreaming To a journey that passed and forgot me on the road Knowing for certain that with this hand I've untied The knot and set my horses loose to graze in the meadow Before my memory flowers will wither There in the patches of earth digging and digging My many wells the fear of an end That's opened and opened with a wail unending While open and dreaming I'll still walk with the rain. Havdala At this hour of nightfall Again I dream of solace.

I've reached your lips: Lord of Dreams We're not silent! You alone are silent.  And imagined he'd seen you in your fullness, from nearby, and like this flower he sought only to raise up your shadow and you, a stone of the street. —TRANS. Page 41 From Canopy in the Desert (1970) The Hour's Late Bare earth it is, the way to my love. I come to her as to a rendezvous.  Already— there's a highway. A traffic light.  Carrying you across my strip of bare earth.  Wind heaps up a mound to placate the Mountain of Curse.
