is that the pebble
that one, the granite one, seeming to cast
two shadows from a single sun,
that has already fallen over the mountains/
a shadow of a reflection, a diffuse
shadow cast by a diffuse lightening
in the east.
i would never have noticed in my
rush until he stopped me, telling me
to watch a pebble
watch a shadow move across a table
as dusk fades to darkness,
stay up to watch moonshadow
in the night.
