THE BLACK WOODEN BOATS
FLOATING OUT JUST BEYOND THE REACH OF SIGHT


exceeding me where the sun and the night might go when the white
month touches me when the warm dream ended and the gold summer
of memory came crashing down and all the leaves rotated as they fell
red and brown and put it in for the second time the lower rather than
being brought up to be dark and yet cool and are as it were as I said
before exceeding me whom you see exceeding you see and you know
the full cruel irony of the black wooden boats floating out just beyond
the reach of sight where I who am attached to you have to hide the
changes and as for the month when those who illuminate the last day
I have to ask what was found and have to presume you do not know
