Bewilderhof – 14

Chapter 14
– reflex ions

in a new reflex
he picked up a stone and
turned it in his hand
as he walked

‘drop it
into pocket’
a new reflex

he left his boots where he slept by the tree and wandered grounded
(picking up needed charge)
beyond the shed

sloth watched as he passed

Pleiadean fireflies

the night sky was some immense equation
that Bewilderhofs
mind rendered as abstract

walking with minimal reason
other than to awaken
down a path
that needed no illumination
other than memory
he came to a spring

from a cup that
was kept
on a nail in an oak
he drank like a man
who had survived
a desert

back at the window
drank like a man
entering one

in the corner
light coalesced
into a slight woman
checking her reflection
in a mirrored compact
