THE SCRIPT

only in dream
do we get
to glimpse the script

perhaps a sentence
flashes in front of you
perhaps in disguise —
we call that “metaphor”

to get there
you travelled the spiral staircase
that takes you
to place
far removed from
stream of time

on the top shelf the texts
that are most
time-resistant

reading them the supreme
counter-clockwise moment

the pages
you thought by now
nothing but
ash

suddenly coming alive
