Repeat (for AY)

I repeat you
without beginning or end
repeat your body
The day has a thin shadow
the night yellow crosses
the landscape has no distinction
and the people a row of candles
while I repeat you
with my breasts
which imitate the hollows of your hands

— Ingrid Jonker, “I repeat you”

    spring rain–
    at night, too, making love
    on Mount Matchi
