Moth-Eaten



If my friend giovanni is right and each snap of the lens snatches another piece of us, then

my Kodachrome-ridden self is nothing but holes—a moth-eaten version of Indra’s Net, where my tangled knots catch the light

of the endless jewels of morning. Nothing in all her singing glory

happens. And everything is shot-through with mirrored light

until there is nothing but the joyful

whole
