Central Europe

20.

Then I came forth
from the sweet curb
of art covered
with new foliage.

The sun darkens my
eyes; they are spirit
of another's will.
Perhaps I am furious
and he is innocent,
only turning
to view the animal
made of parts.

There is a song
I might sing
and would never
satisfy. A harmony
to complicate the
four directions.
Issuing from one
fountain, parting
slowly like
old friends.
