Koshuiti 2

word is elegy to what it signifies
                                        —
Robert Hass

word is not word
but portal

essence is passage
to a land where water walks
on silken ears

Where, in this,
does beauty lie?

she lies
with a swarthy beast named Word,
passaging together
portal into portal
the burden of essence

silken ears, silver tongues
are barks
that walk on water

bestial essence
is the burden
that floats the word
on fields of silence

what is this
I speak to you, or you
to me? silver tongues
swimming
through silken ears

Call to me
out of silent fields
when you arrive.
