The dog with a third eye sees the shape of time
and is startled.
Irregular regularity of the eleventh dimension
intersects his world as sugar bone music,
a pattern in the universe's pattern.
It carries a strange and beautiful danger,
so attractive, so inaccessible,
yet so inescapable through all his nights —
shape of time, God's whim,
rule of chaos, a septachord,
Doris Kareva translated by Tiina Aleman
