The story of that time\ … like tyrants gargling in the depths; in the (forest’s quiet) we
were. Night was inside us; maybe we were stars, maybe we carried our clothes to where
the river “enters.”
Dante says: the centaurs throw the tyrants in the river of blood ; I say: the forest is in the
heart, and we inhabit al Midan square in the homeless rooms; judgment days pass
colorless through us, and we are naked on the square of the universe.
