A mistranslation of René Char's, “ Chaume des vosges”
(for Brandon and Marilou)
Show me da road
Beauty, my always, by the roots of ladders,
at the top of lamps and of courage closed,
could I be grace and could I be soft, feminine December?
Movie future in underwear. It is a ton—vision.
When to sleep?
