I fall from
an exclamation

and face a
tiger, who

is more sudden
than lightning,

I run and
jump onto

a large bracket
that carries me

to the end
of a ferry boat,

that mistakes
me for a mark

of interrogation and casts
me to catch fish

and I lose
a secret I

had eloped with
in a gossip

inverted commas.
