“Breath, breath and be you” – Paul Celan

Into The Distance

Muteness, afresh, roomy a house -:
come, you should dwell there.
Hours, fine-tuned like a curse: the asylum
in sight.
Sharper than ever the air remaining: you must breathe,
breathe and be you.
Paul Celan b. 1920the same year as my father Iorwerth
