Bewilderhof – 20

Chapter 20
– conjuring sparks for the
other

he pulled a lung full of hay stung air in and held it until
he started to see tracer fire
at the perimeters of his eyes
(release/restart)
it was a game he played
as a boy
– a taste of walking
to the edge of one world without falling into another

though, he had come
close enough at times
that he caught a glimpse
of his other
self
his twin
same
yet not completely
a bit more
serrated in demeanor
and
with, from what
little he could tell,
a touch additional flash
in the pupils

DDr arrived at the package
and engaged the shadow
hawk in a silent showdown
she: regal patient
he: neither

after some minutes
(with agreement met)
he departed
and
when he departed
he
moved along the ground
like quicksilver
separating and coalescing
with each undulation
of landscape

different fireworks
graced the edges
of Bewilderhofs eyes now

as the ruby
put the package
in her handbag
took in the morning sun
and transformed
for a visit to the city
