the stars, moons and the subjected sun
to every dead thing
humans, animals and admired plants
lies an untold tale of a buyer
to every living soul
of birds, bats and ambitious owls
to every non-living
stones, gravels and still mountains
lies unfamiliar loneliness.
two things has life offered me;
lost memories of dead seas and oceans
lost homes of amphibians, and doves
which coils under many songs of a deflected wind
He turns out of turnarounds
without a stop or amused dot,
the Watchman wipes his handkerchief
wearing off dust, sand and stimulated wooden frames.
