and iíve constructed phantoms
and i have viewed my shadow in the mirror
where my body lays
and a pack of cds unsleeved
spiral out echostays
it can be mapped in dangled curtains
sway - and then some
the course of play can be mapped
in ruffled cushions
the chairs have split off into
comfortable social groups
i saw the chairs had mingled
had exchanged the civilities
there were shadows where
the forms had been
and i constructed phantoms
from the scattered cans and empty glasses
