Waiting Room

the marrow inside you might say,
'lose the cliffs' and only in human void
will be truth gone where truth will go,
whether or not the ocean is swallowing
the land or the land eating itself.

your bones think, at first, 'I'm traveling for free'
inside this body, free of sound and beauty
and blood growing hair.

[Hata Bildir]
