Speaking to the Unknown – a poem by Richard Green

Speaking to the Unknown

I speak to the unknown
having asked
puis-je vous tutoyer?

I don’t expect an answer
in any voice I could comprehend,
but maybe some form of communication

will pass between us, familiar,
maybe not knowing at the time,
beyond thought,

ideas, structure,
released from definitions
into something like the dream.
