‘And if I look you in the eyes’

‘And if I look you in the eyes’ – 17 Sept. 2015

 

And if I look you in the eyes, perhaps we’ll understand each other

And we won’t hear this common tongue among us

Which isn’t mine—we won’t hear the space… the stutter

No, we’ll live the space, the hurtling eyelights, out there searching

Two stars of the Andromeda

We will not hear the meanings of the melodies so far beyond

We will not care to know the words—only that we know the wonder,
