Before Your Eyes

The pupils are ghost containment units

even the sun cannot see oxygen eaten up by smoke or love evaporate into thin air.

Disappearance is an aperture, a carsick skyline glancing away

sun-blind, no bird’s-eye can frame incinerated horizons.

Dark is in plain sight in absence of waterlines where sky hallucinates cloud from ocean steam.

The break of dawn cannot be timed.

Its passing is mourned in full light.
