Arthur Rimbaud

                        And then
It’s just too beautiful. Don’t say a word.

–A boulevard without traffic or trade,
Every drama muted, every comedy stilled,
An infinite collection of scenes.
I know you, and stare at you in silence.

—Arthur Rimbaud, Rimbaud Complete, Volume 1. (Modern Library; Reprint edition, January 14, 2003)
