Antoine de Saint-Exupery: The Little Prince
“What makes the desert beautiful,' said the little prince, 'is that somewhere it hides a well...”
It's real early morning.
No-one is awake.
I'm back at my cliff
still throwing things off.
I listen to the sounds they make
on their way down.
I follow with my eyes 'til they crash.
Imagine what my body would sound like
slamming against those rocks.
When it lands
will my eyes
be closed or open?
