Good-Bye

Pierre Reverdy, translated from the French by Geoffrey O’Brien

         The glow farther than the head
                               The heart’s leap
On the slope where the air rolls its voice
             the spokes of the wheel
             the sun in the rut

             At the crossroads
             near the hill
                      a prayer
A few words unheard
             Closer to the sky
      And in his footsteps
                    the last square of light
