The Matter of Poetry

We are walking
We are walking within
a slow dark river
among a calendar of wide stones
white with sun standing up like sound

We want them to say hello
We want them to name us too
In our anonymous solitude we call out
‘look at me,’ we call this god we say
we are walking with the
great gypsum eye  who speaks with stones

~ Donna Fleischer
from Intimate Boundaries 1991

淋しいからだから爪がのび出す  尾崎放哉

sabishii karada kara tsume ga nobidasu

from a lonely body

nails begin

to grow
