The steam bath of your faces

the steam bath of your faces

the steam bath of your faces

foreto opening memory’s window take a look around what is situated in the distance

take a count of the moving and the restless

and count out on your hand A those restless ones

those restless ones foreto taking from movement accepting life

long to move and yet still sleeputh

or quick say: from movement comes life

but in stillness death.”
