The Long Line, Breton

We write because
We write because

It is expected of us
(as is love)

Listen, you conspirators
Armed with sheets
I’ve taken it all too literally
Wrapped in dummy blanket

Goethe never had a request
Like yours
He told himself what was enough

The sound within us so deep
Anchors and moors a big moon to it.
Gorgeous quest
That can never be completed
Take your stockings off
Let love be your animal.

-Nina Alvarez
