a quiet life, a couple of times over

a quiet life, a couple of times over

materials: blown glass, neon

Lost without fields to fill,
I don’t know what those tinted glasses do to soften the edges of every moving thing:
beneath you, through you, and there without you.

As I replied, looking into your eyes,
examining them closely to find little pins like gems inside:

a quiet life,
a couple of times over.
