A Light in the Window


All things lean toward rain. You are on a journey and the path you travel is on a
journey of its own. Three horses standing in a field are breathing small clouds of mist that
float away in the air like abstractions. A woman is dancing at a bright window.
The window that travels with you is a circle that prefers darkness. Frantic stars in
the arrowblack evening of roots dance in the moist hush of rainlamps, dance for the light
at rest on the chair.
These are the masters of drift, and you are the vase on the difficult ledge farther in,
furiously lost in the night of these windows. Your light is the only light. Turn it off.
