DARK THINGS
Novica Tadic

Dark things open my eyes,
raise my hand, knot my fingers.

They are close and far away,
beyond nine hills
in a hidden refuge.

Night is their kingdom,
and this day, just breaking,
is their cloak of light.

No force can cancel them,
Untangle them, explain them.

They stay where they are,
in our chests,
murmuring in our hearts.
