Knight Approaching Distant Castle

There's something about a wall
that makes a lovely meadow.

Behind it, the song is playing
that I heard in my womb.

You've done a lot of research
simply by being who you are

all this time, resetting
the porcelain pieces

of secret games
on impeccable tables.

I know better than you
only because of the wind's direction.
