Eclipse: A Meditation

April 2024

even through this shape-shifting spring–

cloudy, bright, mild, full of storms, blooms–could I

look once clearly at us and

in the shortest interval

perceive all bodies, our bodies, as one,

shadows dancing in deep tango with the light,

even then, might I come back gone blind to it?
