Ekphrasis 14: Brian Pike + Jared Wahlgren

April 28, 2007

Fine Balance

by Brian Pike (#1.9 in the gallery)

Shutters

There is little shadow cast,
I shy
away from the high notes.
We place our souls
in envelopes
and lip them shut.
We take away
the day
half dark, half sputtered,
semi-erected.
We built this house here,
the shutters
have
tired (e)y(e)s.
