DENSITY

Mist. Say
nothing now.
Much is left unsaid.
A little is much.
The word hardly
hardly moves
in the wind
which is nowhere.

Say nothing now.
Wipe out nothing.
On the same surface
of the night. Against which
scarcely and nowhere.

Density

Density

Nevel. Zeg
nu niets.
Veel is verzwegen.
Weinig is veel.
Amper beweegt
het woord amper
in de wind
die nergens is.

Zeg nu niets.
Veeg niets uit.
In hetzelfde vlak
van de avond. Waartegen
nauwelijks en nergens.
