Spazieren

Ditta Baron Hoeber


I


you meet a person

and in his face...


what part

of the word recognize...


is recognize always history


could it be instead

an imaginary hat


spazieren

(strolling)


you see a person

and in his face


there is...

and he says do you like my hat?


and you say

I can’t leave home this way.



II


looking in the mirror

brush in hand


paper. ink. the light

that lights my skin


each crease


a page

folded down


lined. lines I write.

draw. drawn to


recognize.


brush in hand

I attempt


relentlessness

black ink obliterating


imagination.



III


wrong.


try again.


relentless. recognize.

the ink. the ink. the light.


imagining a hat to

wear spazieren


strolling


you see a person

and in his face you recognize


your face.


draw

drawing

drawn to


you ask him

do you like my hat?
