I walked through the forest
as wind insufflated the trees.
Their cries, though deafening, were mere whisperings to me.
I look at the ground counting stones and broken twigs.
I look for your crown, among the devil’s figs.
Why insist on sleeping when you know night’s dark fate?
Your empty mind is nothing now.
Just the devil’s bait.
