      THE SEEKING



      He seeks in his life,
      but finds only
      his life. Everything that is used
      becomes an object, even
      a life. Helplessly he turns the pages
      of the unwritten book.

      In the middle of the night he wakes up. Dark
      sentries surround the bed;
      in vain he unfolds
      his wings. To use life
      is to deny it. He ignites
      the light's white salt, but sees
      with his closed eyes, listens
      with his open hands. The years
      darken. Someone is approaching
      in the gloom; a being
      is leaving its source. The hour
      is nigh. The hour
      is always nigh.
