Page xii is vocalised and inserted with foreign words

Page xii is vocalised and inserted with foreign words
Dealing apparently, according to the context,
With the unclear, unobtained, that has no fence
And is not grasped in the closing hand

The manuscript comes disturbed and unreadable
Like something frightened the writing hand
I will place a jar of fresh water by his side
And he will open his eyes into a saturated dawn
