Trying to feel


 We had a conversation today

about living and dying  

about life and death

about those forty-nine

that we do not know

and others that we do

this conversation was full of questions

and no answers

trying to look at what is close

and what is far away

 what is it that we can touch








And then reflected light

from the windshields of the cars outside

cast shadows

through the window

of the upside down acrobat

and moved him like one leaving

across the wall.
