Some journeys never promise a return:
You set out late, barefoot, at night,
Through oblique hours
Themselves in flight;
And there are journeys without ways at all:
You pass through wastes of withered heath,
Like a comb’s teeth;
Then there are journeys that you cannot take:
You chew raw flesh on both your thumbs,
You tilt your glass
And darkness comes.
