He pushes behind the words 
which, awkward, catch 
and tum Him to a disturbed 
and fumbling man.

What if it all stops. 
Then silence 
is as silence was 

What if the last time 
He was moved to touch, 
work out in his own mind, 
such limits was the last—

and then a quiet, a dull 
space of hanging actions, all 
depending on some time
