You write what you can you go

all around
the subject, not
because you didn't know it

was a subject
but because it is

the subject. We are

subjects of The Subject
in the kingdom of greatness, the realm

whence we come No hea koe?
where we live

an imaginary
place between illusion
and feeling between

language and nothing
where the world's shape
is its sound.

Setting for a novel, perhaps
the poem.
Go right to the heart, never

miss a beat


From The Subject (Auckland: AUP, 1994)
