Something on the window pane
To paint a dim today,
A stained glass understanding
Of an incident I call myself,
Repeated in the streaks upon
This awkward little landscape.
And it’s all but neat and easy
And I’m all but calm and free
To take a lasting look at
Passing things that glance
Beyond my feeble place
In place of stable statements
And of strokes I might repeat
So to draw pictures of an aspect
I’ve mistaken for the fact,
But it’s in facts I meet
With differences too glaring
To resolve.
And so to make out with a reason
I’ll be reasoning with mirrors as
I fashion something new
From older views I can’t concede.
