fragments of an attempted writing.
'No need to apologise,'
says God to his conscience.
'Speak a little louder,' time says
to eternity, 'I am heavy of hearing.'
Are the machine and the tiger
related by more than a purr?
'The answer is at the back
of the mirror,' says Alice, 'where truth lies.'
- R.S. Thomas,
Collected Later Poems 1988-2000
