(24 avril) / (April 24)

French

Rempart mouvant de ton dos.
Chaque nuit,
ton souffle permet
l’amble du sommeil,
jusqu’au retour.

CHANTAL DUPUY-DUNIER, Éphéméride

REPRINTED WITH THE AUTHOR’S PERMISSION

English

Your back, a shifting shield.
Every night,
your breathing
lets sleep amble
just to the edge,
then return.
