The final of a series of twelve, originally published in Terra Firma.
To, or for, in opposition, as in prayer,
as in declining an opened
space and accepting the edges’
offer, a history of minutes
held in abeyance. Limits unfold and present
options, remnants of incomplete
light, low clouds rising to reveal
a window’s apparition, the original eye
betrayed and released to reason.
Intent upon one, the others escape.
