Windows and Mirrors

    faces of sad and happy life 

      lightning in crystal

   thunderstorm traps

frost-seed granulations

     water at freezing and melting

sunlight through museum panes

    the glare of volcanic glass

a bird’s reflection in its shadow

pearl of time in the face of night

    last looks at last faces descried

the binding of souls

bridges over limitless waters

view from a window at Le Gras

 time driving backwards

     mannequin transmissions

the vague “she” of poetry

nakedness dressed in its reflections

   sunset in Emma Bovary’s eyes 

blue mirrors of Shallot

the soaring of Zeno’s stillness

the flight of the alone

the surgeries of Dr. Glas  

the surface of vertical

the spaceless dimension

of duration

buried in glass

flower store windows bare

barbershop empty

travellers on a Greyhound

morning     the breath gone
