Nicole Brossard, from "Theatre: Speed of Water"

nothing gentles the world
there are words that disappear
taken back by the sea and its folds
a fecund architecture
while drawn close to our lips
intrigued by the tide
night brandishes its echo

(tr. Robert Majzels and Erin Moure, from Museum of Bone and Water)
