WHITE LADY – The poem is my body, this poem the tired flesh, the dream that the sun crosses deserts the boundaries of the soul’s touch. And I remember you Dickinson, precious soft ghost. The time and distance in the other’s mouth are missing, you fall into the air, and you are the air striking my forehead is invisible with salt. The ends of the soul’s touch are closed; the earth is heard to rotate. That noise without blind sand light, striking us in this way will be eyes that were mouth, which said hands, which open and close empty, distant in your window. See the wind that passes, you see your face pass in the flames posthumous, the star of summer and you fall snow made of birds in the source of the earth in oblivion. And come back with the false name of a woman, wearing your winter clothes with your white mourning winter clothes.
