This book
was written more than 3000 years ago
by a blind poet
and I read it today
to a blind man

And the eyes of the sky
swallow us both


To be alone is just
a window through
I look at myself
and I see me only me
but somehow different
like standing in a cage
of sun-beams
with no face at all
   and this window
is cracked but not
