when the lights go on
a little too quickly
a thin glass bottle breaks
emitting the carefully preserved
pointless but precious
heretofore called "contents"
of a regime careful of the fragile
soulful for the satin ribbon
cavalier with the plastics
contemptuous, but merciful
of the fleeting
and the endless
if only art was drawn
in quick minutes
as wax impression
shaped and reshaped with light
