Kafka sits in a chair by the shore,
Thinking for the pendulum
that moves the world, it seems.
When your heart is closed,
The shadow of the unmoving Sphinx,
Becomes a knife that pierces
your dreams.

The drowning girl's fingers
Search for the entrance stone,
and more.
Lifting the hem of her azure dress,
She gazes --
at Kafka on the shore
