Une rencontre continuée

James Sacré

Terminer le poème est-ce que c’est pas
Comme de fermer plutôt que l’ouvrir
Un dernier tiroir ?

James Sacré, Une rencontre continuée, Le Castor Astral, 2022.

de l’instant


Had I been there
Looking across at the glacier
And wondering why it recedes
And does not advance,
I would surely have gone
To the little cafe on the wharf
And lunched on fresh halibut.
I would have been
Where I ought to have been,
In my mind, fishing deep waters.
