from dances of death


The night, the street, the lamp, the drugstore.
Light without sense. Night without shape.
Go on for twenty years, or more—
There is no change. And no escape.

You die— and then relive it all,
The same restart, the same repeat:
The night, the ice on the canal,
The drugstore, the lamp, the street.
