Most of his time went into writing
he looked at an object in different ways
and was always lost in a tangle of metaphors
like the electricity in the exhumed wires.
He took the safe path of non-judgment
he felt secure that way so that
there won't be that unexpected knock of protesters.
He wrote, as an observer from a distance
as an astronomer with a telescope
adjusting his focus now and then
and rarely going out of his room on the roof top.
