This Road Alone

This road alone was left before me.
It is a forest or a tale; dirigibles land on the roofs as
    the village removes its plague-stricken dead in
    wooden carts that rumble away under the cover
    of night. While the master shoemaker sleeps
    fitfully, the dwarfs get busy making his shoes.
    The desert stretches full-length in my dreams,
    studded with dangers and cautionary tales.

It is a twofold message, part headed in a different
    direction: one disappears like a squirrel into the
    kingdom of flora inside of my head, the other awaits
    me like a sentry in front of my door.

And there, in the all-night cafeteria where
    immigrants hide their broken teeth in their
    sleeves, like a drop of ink that travels from iris to
    iris, the message lets me know the secret at last;
    the empty glass on the table prays for some wine.
    Eyes gaze into the distance, while Billie Holiday
    sings from the core of her black agony: I SLAVED
    FOR YOU…

And the earth floats among the planets.
