one way to disappear is to bury
and remain. another weaves trance
with dispersion, pearls on glass
frosted and weather-proof. glass
borrows a blush of warmth to bury
its ley lines. it shifts from trance
to latency made light. how trance
yields mirage in the slant of glass
stained, remains too precise to bury.
you bury this trance. mist scatters on glass.
