It's The Seven League Boots This Phrase “I See Myself”

From Tether 1, page 55:

Translated from the French by Bill Zavatsky

YOUR LOVERS AND MISTRESSES

     to Janine

They don’t write their initials in chalk
in the white forest of love.
An eternal reaper erases the mathematicians’ blackboards
gelatine city complacent with spiders you shudder at my voice
Smoke plays an important part in my life.
And some ferocious tiger has traced
the reflection of its yellow eyes onto my chest.
A wall of tobacco and iris
This is the fortress
of the river’s
tribunal where
a hundred fishes
fly.
