How terrible to know you

to William Carlos Williams

 

how terrible to know you

across the years man frightened of your loneliness open eyes seeing seeing

maximum of light the human eye can hold penetrated you you opened yourself to it

tirelessly

watching

details                outlines                nuances

of light

subtle

changes

in atmosphere

shades

in the heart of every being knowing

 

yourself       at the center       of a terrifying flower which yearly opens and devours the watcher
