With salty lips I stare:
A beautiful man, 
Crouching behind walls of
Human bones — not singing,
None of them — 
But rattling like rats
For this one man
With mute eyes
With deaf lips
With blind ears –

He does not know
He does not know me
One dot of many more
A couple of eyes
Lips moving
Ears, they have to hear
And I hear
Heavens, I hear
The colorless bones, 
Still shining of sweaty 
Human life, 
And they rattle, rattle, 
Rats that hiss, 
And he does not know
He does not know they 
Rattle for him —

I do know
I do know him
One dot of nothing anymore
A beautiful stranger
But – I do know him
