For instance, along that wall
the prints, Bruegel and the Piranesi,
have an understanding, a treaty.
This apartmentís geographies?
your nation, mine, neutral zones,
rights of passage and terrains
(this bed, that table). So many things.
A complex mechanism
how objects are there,
registered and forgot;
then refurbished by a glance, not.
Perhaps the space was most beautiful
containing only air and light.
But that was a place no one could live.
Voices echoing, we moved the first box in.
