I think my heart has never been like this so warm and red. I feel even in the worst moments of this fatal night several thousand sun-springs in my heart surge up from deep certainty. I feel in every nook and cranny of these salt flats of despair several thousand wonderfully wet forests suddenly spring from the earth. * Oh certainty gone astray, oh runaway fish in the ponds of slippery mirror within mirror! I am a clear lagoon; now through the enchantment of love, find a path from the mirror-ponds to me! * I think my hand has never been so glad, so grand: I feel in my eyes a cascade of bloody tears that stirs a never-setting sun to breathe a song; I sense in my every vein in every heartbeat now the bells of a passing caravan ring: wake up! * She came one night, naked, through the door like water's soul At her breast, two fish, and in her hand a mirror her wet hair smelling of moss as if braided with moss. I cried out from the threshold of despair, "Oh, certainty now found-I won't neglect you again!"
