sight lowering

.
it comes as a milky cloth
twenty-four or thirty-six hours and I

.
live of something else I do not fight
I feel I smell and each hour has its taste

slow and sweet of who is blinded by white
of who doesn’t know yet believes that

.
this time too I will ride up the blood
to look outside once more
