33 I needed snow to cover all the black Between two days, two eyes, between the blue and yellow -- The snow to calm the red of frozen days, To glide across the edge, to reach a weightless balance. I needed you to bridge two foreign shapes, Two alien kinds, to mix for me the blue and yellow, To free the red of the forbidden strain, Despite the white and black, the weightless and the heavy. It is still snowing, for I am in need, When you are painting me in my forgotten color. Despite the black and red, I need your green. It snows for me between two eyes to calm and cover.
