Chapter 2. Jökulsárlón | 64°02’36″ x 16°12’39″ RRRR

  • Jokulsarlon
  • The Library of Water

    I’ll send you a piece of the glacier, lying deep in the landscape past camp,
    where the faucets
    and the light in the bathhouse are on

    and the light of the front desk was turned out at eight, all copies of the lonely earth on

    the racks,
    and the glacier turns over in its grave shrinking bed—it calves,

    and I part my hair to the right with a comb,
    and I am content
    in my world of earth and fire, ice and shampoo and suspicious—how easily I get what I

    need

    when I point my finger,

    when I point to a well and I clasp my hands,
    here is the church, here is the steeple, open the door
    and the world is a glass overflowing
