The shadow of a nameless tune
The simple sun is sifting through the blue smoke from your mouth

The bended chair, the wilted rug

And furrowed lines like field rows or wakes behind a stone
Collected deeply cut behind two eyes I tried to know
And once again I’m looking down at something I don’t really understand
