Jay Udall Was that you sitting on the bench, watching the pond, the hill greening with weeds? When I looked back, you were walking away, slowly, as if waiting for someone to catch up. If that wasn't you, then who was seated beside me last night in a dream, cursing the purest white, soft-soled, slip-on shoes we all had to wear in our prison? I slip on someone else's thrift store skin and my stories rearrange, changing colors. A chrysalis opens, I look up through my father's dying eyes, sinking away from familiar voices fading and blending, drifting toward the mouths of fire, dirt, air. Fish wander the pond's body opened by light. The earth breeds pinks, yellows, purples as something breathes me and my hand reaches again for the meat, the wine. What I meant to ask was, Who or what is gazing through our eyes?
