Tiny White Dots, Simmering Fringes
I'll take the smaller chair, back a bit.
I want to absorb. Be invisible. Be.
Soft and hidden is this song. Mine,
and the song of my loved ones.
Delicate and peering, we are everywhere,
though we take the smaller chair,
or the space beneath, the space behind.
Look: we glow through, circles with centres,
adaptable, camouflaged, inserting our subtleties.
