You exist

You exist

Your place is
where eyes look at you.
Where eyes meet
you come into being.

Held by a call,
always the same voice,
everyone appears to be calling
in one voice.

You could fall,
but you won’t.
Eyes catch you.

You exist
because eyes want you,
look at you and say
that you exist.

Hilde Domin (1909-2006)

Translated from the German by Johannes Beilharz (© 2015)

I wish to remain clear of details. My words shall lift the veil.
