I will forget about every day, sunny vaginas of Rio
and jumpy jingles. I will forget about every night,
dark forms, and apparitions, and shadows of my parents.
Everything that matters and which does not matter.
Everything that only just calms down. Everything which
divides things connected in this double world
which is the best of all worlds, because there is no better one,
a better than the best.
Forget about everything—it sounds so good
like the letter of the impossible, which is surrounded
by the possible, gathered there to form words in order to see
the things that are said, melted like candle-wax of that something
which we call memory,
which remembers us solely as dumb tunes
on the deaf and frigid face of the Moon.
