"Reality" excerpt by Wislawa Szymborska


Reality doesn't vanish
the way dreams do.
No rustle, no bell
disperses it,
no cry or thump
rouses from it.

Images in dreams
are blurred and uncertain,
open to many
Reality denotes reality,
and that's a greater puzzle.

Dreams have keys.
Reality opens on itself
and won't quite shut.
It trails...."
