french stone portrait

14 December 2007

to make the portrait of a stone
close the eyes

think about thresholds
about breton windows
about paving stones of Paris
about ducks and drakes
about knees in blood

and find here one’s splits
one’s hard words

but already reopen the eyes

this portrait lasts
only in the hand
