This world of which I am a member,
The sad eyes of lynxes,
cold where we lose our keys,
And little of words which we use,
The cumbersome meetings,
The moon as an hat
On the head of birds,
All this silence in Melbourne,
This world of which I am a member,
And of which I ignore the small intentions,
As those of the people who I meet,
This world which we cannot like,
The chair where I sit
is more solid than my loves,
Those who fall, those who speak to silence the others
are so many,
That I prefer the flavor of the tea,
The teatime where the world keeps silent.

These last six lines made sense to me and I liked very much . . .

"the chair where I sit
is more solid than my loves,
Those who fall, those who speak to silence the others
are so many,
That I prefer the flavor of the tea,
The teatime where the world keeps silent."
