Night Lamp - Agi Mishol

It takes time for the body
to grasp what the mind has decided
so the body strokes itself
with an outline of consolation:
here the shoulder, here
the face, here the inner thighs—

This is the bottomless sigh
devoid of a consonant
to lean against.

Agi Mishol (born 1947) Israel (born Romania)
