The Eighth Refraction of a Sideways Shadow

This was a Gathering set for Light –
Infinity was invited

These Three: Two Daughters, the Hour of Six
One Cat, free, satellited

Five Cloths, in Circles
dressed the Table

(beige and brown, they rounded down
her Thoughts dark edged in sable.)

Flat Floorwoods found trueselves Four Feet –
the Dream, it sneaked sure in

The sideways Shadows of them before
now balanced upon fresh Skin

Then time it came to wrap this Night
in Seven long Sheets, remembered

the longest wait, Eight Futures maked
in bronz-ed shimmering Embers.
