NO IDEAS BUT IN THINGS

Anonymous

no ideas / but in things
not the rooster / but the wheelbarrow
filled with water / in the rain

small child / in the bed
the doctor / at her side
the whole din / of fractured knowledge
the teacher / cannot name

the student / cannot know
the cold wind / on the thick glass
the airÔÇÉconditioned / buzz and whir
then silence
once again
