        EARTH BY NIGHT

Night writes you,
                   transcribes you,
                   invents you.
                          Thus
                              on paper,
linen so alone,
                time:
paper where night
would open by itself
the land of its effigy,
the figure,
the body from which arise
the invisible signs.
        The
Earth by Night
Terra della Notte,
terracota or fate
or writing that invents
the distance in you,
what is behind you:
night's alphabet of nothingness.
