The final of a series of twelve, originally published in Terra Firma in 2004, and posted here in 2014.
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.
