Shards of shadow on the couch – ragged blades
of dark abrade the bright – arrest: induce a sharp
distress: the thought that this November flight
of filtered yellow-silver might be the equivalent of dust
erased from somewhere – caught, dismissed, discarded –
from and to a void – a vacancy, a senseless scheme:
regarded – seen – by nobody at all: as meaningless
as reflex – empty dream: the splintered light of Fall.
