Prequel

  1. As if the lamp left on demands the better part
  2. of dusk in which I find myself
  3. up to a point, a body with more roles to play
  4. now joined by a third I can't see through
  5. recurrent whiteness glowing up ahead
  6. made of hours in the temporary way, they rise
  7. half-shining, offering more reasons not to count
  8. how far small drops of water travel then
  9. contract along this path it seems
  10. I’ve spiraled back, as chance
  11. subjects no one has seized before broadcast
  12. the glassed-in sky, the transference of night.
