An Angel with no face embraced me
and whispered through my whole body:
‘Don’t be ashamed of being human, be proud!
Inside you vault open behind vault endlessly. You will never be complete, that’s how it’s meant to be.’
Blind with tears
I was pushed out on the sun-seething piazza
together with Mr. and Mrs. Jones, Mr. Tanaka, and Signora Sabatini
and inside them all vault opened behind vault endlessly.
