Elegy

“Vanitas” Michael Conrad Hirt, circa 1630 (Public Domain)

 

Fossilized footprints, books

Placing my self inside another’s imprints

Close enough to touch the marks

the writer left

in time

 

Connect with creature through created

One-way mirror, darkened back

One either sees

or is

reflected

 

From the forests, page by page

The words are thrown into the sea

Wanderers find that they were seeking

kinship bottled, opened

keening
