The Beautiful Day, V

Author:

he went

to the window.

it folded & shrank.

 

quietly, & without warning

them, night leaked into the

room, into the 'idea' of the group.

 

how easy it is to lie

to you.  what a soft

lie your silence is.

 

she moved closer

to the window.  night

shifted & sank.

 

From The Floating Bear No 13 (1961)
