je vis d’amour et d’eau douce-Paz

…Night with eyes of water in the field asleep is in your eyes, a horse that trembles is in your eyes of secret water. Eyes of shadow-water, eyes of well-water, eyes of dream-water. Silence and solitude, two little animals moon-led, drink in your eyes, drink in those waters. If you open your eyes night opens, doors of musk, the secret kingdom of the water opens flowing from the center of night. And if you close your eyes, a river fills you from within, flows forward, darkens you: Night brings its wetness to beaches in your soul.
