BACK IN THE BOULANGER















This wooden wall

was here in Hegel’s time.

He had its ear.

He would have carved out

a conversation then,

rested his tired head,

drunk time.

The punter here today

tells us strangers this.

He’s proud of the local boy,

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich the woodsman,

and of the wood,

dark with ages,

that has lived

to tell you

the truth.
