The darkness smites with iron the iron sea
And the limestone of sunset, sediment of lonely intimacies,
Extending its lidded periphery
Where are no eyes to witness.
I sit in Brooklyn, in an evening grave with names
And money. Gulls settle, and musics declare
The inexorable night together.
—Harry Mathews, from “The Swimmer.”
