Déjà Vu


The Curtains drawn open
The lit torch handed
The ball rolled onward
All waking me up
Thrusting me to the truth
Reality of the déjà vu.

I stand at its gate
A sigh of laden future heaved
I look up to the sky
It stares freckled blue upon me
I crane down my head
And my spirit knows it is.

Yes, the inner believes
This is where it’s meant to be
But the outer doubts it so
A tearing strain between two wholes
Two wholes but two halves
Battling for the action whistle.

But then, through the curtains
I march forth
Bearing the torch
For my rolling ball
Onto my present former land
’cause all’s a cycle of déjà vu.

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
