Through the needles of the rain, he hurried back
We did not get up to offer him a seat
Like a long bench, half in light and half in shadow
A narrow shaft of time fluctuated in the crowd
He sat back among us, exactly like last year
Enduring pain, drinking wine and comforting us

It could not be opened easily
On the wooden table, a letter waiting to be signed
A stub-nosed somewhat ugly boy
Standing on his toes, slipped an old feather-duster into the porcelain vase
