A wish, these solitudes in dark wept, midnight
exits in a dream, torturing you; emerges
in oceans, as if the face of the sea-light
is in a trance of wander, a dark mind urges
this end of game; the half-lit stretch devours death
quietly in hyacinth winter as we left;
a rock rises along the carved windfall, disowned
by the Gods—where we lay out of reach alone.
