In the mirrors

ten spheres and ten sayings

speculate at their open book:

the eye's light springs from the pupil

of one perpetually surprised.

II

To remember

is to paint the world in reverse:

the king's laughter explodes

above the crown and evaporates it.

The road leads to Gerona.

III

The letters are mixed

with water, earth, wood,

stone, cane, stalks and iron:

while Beauty plays

I will reach the observatory.

 

Carlota Caulfield, from Book of the XXXIX Steps
