Chasing the Horizon

If north is female and south is male

north and south getting along as well

as Korea and Vietnam and Ireland.

What hope does man and woman have

if Eve and Newton’s apple fell?

Dreamy black and white lithe light slipping through a prism

caught in reflection, in observation

mirrors showing us what we think we see.

Take a drink of yourself

take in yourself and you’re drunk on the memory you now see

do you see the you  have become?

How do you know?

It’s not as simple as sight is it?

Do you think the blind don’t have memories?

You take the lake

and you filter it through a series of events

adding notes and chemicals, subtracting chemicals and tastes

till you drop two ice cubes into your summer tumbler and take a drink.
