Something I Found the Other Day

My poem in the back of Revolution of the Mind by Andre Breton…

When the world is talking to me

and again, I am not listening–

I think I have to see the sound

But of course, it can’t be found.


In the silence of a simple mind–

between a breath in endless time,

you come to me, a hummingbird

hovering over unmouthed words

that were til now, oddly deferred–


And so you wait for my reply

before the moment

has come and died.
