“A Moment”



A Moment


I am here just for a moment
I won’t manage to see
the Cathedral in Rheims
and all those places
with such sonorous names
that poets like.
But will I manage to take a step
toward the door
and my neighbor?
Will I name
for the first time
the color of the window frame
and the asphalt breaking down the light?
That which is nearest, because
to the tree and the stone
I won’t make it
in time.
