Tears of Vapour

Basel, Switzerland, 2015.

Basel, Switzerland, 2015.

 

Paper bound in paper,
carrying a labour
that is of no greater
than her tears of vapour.

Heartaches bound in heartaches,
each time when she awakes
all the things she forsakes
will become but still lakes.

Traces bound in traces,
none of which are spaces
o all of these places
on which her heart gazes.

– Agnes Chew
