In Broken Images

 

He is quick, thinking in clear images;
I am slow, thinking in broken images.

 

He becomes dull, trusting to his clear images;
I become sharp, mistrusting my broken images,

 

Trusting his images, he assumes their relevance;
Mistrusting my images, I question their relevance.

 

Assuming their relevance, he assumes the fact,
Questioning their relevance, I question the fact.

 

When the fact fails him, he questions his senses;
When the fact fails me, I approve my senses.

 

He continues quick and dull in his clear images;
I continue slow and sharp in my broken images.

 

He in a new confusion of his understanding;
I in a new understanding of my confusion.

 

Robert Graves
