Two Couplets on Vision


Two Couplets on Vision

The sun rises in opposition to image
and sets in middle of a million pictures


What’s right before me is a blur but worth the trade
to escape the burden of frames and look around

Driving Down the Mountain After Dusk

Driving Down the Mountain After Dusk


Dusk is finally gone but it has left a mark on the dark green slopes
like pencil has been rubbed over everything

You know there are trees there pines and oaks maples others
but now all you can verify is that it’s a hill with the disposition

of trees or a tendency towards treeness but it’s too dark
to prove the trees are there and we’re moving too fast

following a line we can’t see the end of but which we know
ends before daylight
