Then Winksby Hafiz (Daniel Ladinsky)
Original Language English
Everything is clapping today.
A rabbit I pass pulls a cymbal
From a hidden pocket
This causes a few planets and I
To go nuts
And start grabbing each other.
Someone sees this,
Tries to get me
Listen: this world is the lunatic's sphere,
Don't always agree it's real,
Even with my feet upon it
And the postman knowing my door
My address is somewhere else.
