Through a distant awareness

all eyes unmasked

The answers vacant

and fading fast


The horizon changes

from front to back

All reasons caught

within its trap


Time despondent

its seconds tear

Whose reign dethroned

inception near


The weight uprooted 

a seedless fruit

The past, tomorrow

—and present moot


(Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania: November, 2022)
