You Can Never Be Sure

Furniture appears to dream.
Children will work on making personal box constructions
exploring the shades of a singular
stuffed raven in a cage and an Eskimo mask.
I don’t know why I came here
with a soul that is neither of ice nor of fire.
Although there was no moon in actuality,
astonishment takes the form of a mysterious ray of light,
an awareness of his older brother’s presence,
images that focus on the photographic process;
in other words, haggling over the spirit of fried potatoes.
The idea is the only thing that counts,
but in vain, memories become sardine!
The clock, set at quarter past two,
continues to achieve successful retrospectives.
