That is, like a brief moment to be

'束の間の、つなぎのようなもの - That is, like a brief moment to be filled'


A cat is liquid like

a hole in the wall is like a lens
a building is like an hollowed container

It is a projection of time through something that doesn’t move

Where does a mountain end?
The line is movement, the movement is life

The pulse of the building continues to bleed, like rain,
falling onto what enters to the lower, and to the upper gallery

A life comes and goes through this building
which she speaks to, through which she feels the half light

The ending of it is lost, though
as it always leads us back to the beginning, where it is supposed to be

A moth,
nearing its death
a moment, for a breath
Imago flying

You see through the gap, the slit, and the hole v the darkness where the light is the ephemeral

That is, like a brief moment to be filled

fertile silence, an inserted comma
the cat disappears into shadows, a nuance of love

she remains here through my feeling her
an opening line of lament
