Portugal, by the way, resurfaced

  I've always wondered
  how to make sense of
  the Azores with any-
  thing less than some
  days among the ruins
  of Evora.

  Without history, the
  traveler must fumble
  in the dark, and the
  sonorities of humane
  practices fall flat.

   I think this is
   the most beauti-
   ful language my
   hearing can as-
   pire to absorb,
   dissolving even
   softer than Ver-
   laine's this na-
   tive, restless
