    John Burnside
    “and because what we learn in the dark
    remains all our lives,
    a noise like the sea, displacing the day's
    pale knowledge,

    you'll come to yourself
    in a glimmer of rainfall or frost,
    the burnt smell of autumn,
    a meeting of parallel lines,

    and know you were someone else
    for the longest time,
    pretending you knew where you were, like a diffident tourist,
    lost on the one main square, and afraid to enquire.”
    John Burnside, Selected Poems
