what to make of a window
by what means of magic
do glaziers make matter transparent
admitting of only invisible light
permitting resultant perception of sight
unless it plays mirror
with angles and cants
and reflects us in half-image
back on ourselves
or distorting the light in
a concentrate glare
it blinds us from all sense of truth

it hangs dense in its brittle solidity
firmly dividing of inside from out
how to possibly tell then
on which is the side where we stand
here is us – there is them
good or bad – right or wrong
if we pick up a rock and just shatter it
giving free access for mutual passage
will there be collision
or merely a blending
that wipes out distinctions
and brings on the end of the world
