And sleep broken (and restless besides) –

The frumpled bed abandoned;

The waterbrush of desklamplight.

Tea water set to boil.

He hovers, hovers,

Clasps a cup with dry darjeeling;

Scrives phrases spoken in vision


By the dark-eyed, double-crowned moon

Wanders through pages,

Traces threads,

Gathers their fray,


And gives chase

Through a tangled knot of notes,

To find passage somewhere passed by:
