“Two specters, two old flames.
A mountain, a crooked flight. One sparkling wing, one hidden. A desire for permanence, a desire for abandonment.
A hidden wing, another one with razors.
A soul in ember, a body in deep eagerness for touches. Mental marks of an eye in the future, dreams in the past.
One wing in the sky, one eye in nothing. A dream in man, a will to abandon.
One foot in space, one mind on Earth (on the ground). “
