A greyness on the deck

A post-office in the afternoon

And a glassed peon.

Any letter for the remote destination?

A grey basin.

A sea-voyage of the river

And a morbid ship.

Gradually become the sea-gull  

And the night

And becomes black the night like the night

And there is no nocturnal bird.

Then who will cheer the pole-star?


Awakens the soul only the flapping of the nocturnal bird.
