Vision

Vision

 

Now you see it:

Derwentwater, full on,

pinkish spill

of Good Friday silver;

mercurial shape-shifter

between mountains.

Now you don’t.

Grey film slips

Over eye-shutter, bang, gone.

Tongue tries a lick

though any sense,

even the sixth trips you.

Now you turn

to trick it, inattentive,

or attentive only

to scree-slide;

a wayward boot-lace.

 

 It sees you.

 

It looks away.
