From the Pillow Book, Peter greenaway

On my back she writes
All the sorrow of her days
Covers me in heart-break

Then, she turns me to her
Composes the essence of her joy

Dawn, she leaves quietly
Finding the street’s anonymity
a soothing relief

Her book reads the morning news
And drinks coffee on the deck.
