Lumpy, reactive minds, we’re
drawn to things because in them we find
drawings of ourselves or, at least,
within them we find what we have already drawn.
Starlight: (you choose) a pin’s spark, or space closed
to a point. The coastal breeze: a soft touch
or some last, pathetic tremor. It’s multi-
sensual, yes, because we know sound and taste
still come from the things we believe we will see
or will just miss, believing
we could have seen them. In a glance
we’re cast off: a spear through atmosphere; a roo
struck, flattening a termite mound. To them we
return, to these things we’ve already seen.
