Through withering iron rails I meditated

as each thing became trivial. Last year’s water stain

left in a nebulous place

My sight was flickering and exhausted—

O angel, if you with your holy glorified mind could not

understand these hard-wrought words as blood and tears

I pray for your mercy

O angel, if you have decided to abandon me

then tell me what I sought and presumed to own

was instead vacillating randomly, turning anytime—

like cyclogenesis that will never be formed—

if you cannot remain forever attentive in your reading

that deconstructs my life and death


(Li and Bramwell)
