Memory Pictures #9

Telling you, Salma, about many things that begin with the question of robbery and end with the question of the secret with God.

Salma, who is the robber of astonishment?
While hearts age and the water's surface remains most powerful,
I write you, little girl, I write you as mother or grandmother.
To tell you about natural disasters
Or about a hole between the eyes,
About a memory that, should you carry it - a river will flow in you,
About a desert, whether you had left it or not,
And about the Return, before things end,
To tell you about the right to a true farewell, worthy of today's sun,
To tell you about the ugly concessions
And the beautiful ones,
About the words and their synonyms when I want to reach my goal.
Do you share a secret with God?
