In the uneventful
Silence of the night
Snails wander
Their silvery trails
The short path
From the door to the gate

Caterpiller-nibbled leaves on a
Heavy green fig bush
Since time immemorial
A shapeless
Methane-blue flash
Inconceivably fast
Tumbles into reality

And as on the raw material
of a Polaroid snap
Out of nothing
Lines appear
The details
Increasingly painful
And conceivable
It has not reached from
Door to gate
But it has

István Grencsó
