Late Style
A dark shadow of friendship began to appear.
It is beautiful because most music
Is not very good.
Feeling that we live is itself pleasant
Though it does not bring you any closer.

X continued to equal X
But as a sort of courtesy.
It got to be later in the day.
There was a certain innocence nonetheless;
A new system had been installed.

But the great reminiscences, the historical shudder – .

A part of it will never be occupied
Though the weather of the times will always rain
On its abstraction and we will feel a great affinity
With the buildings scrawled there.
