……for Pat

So far
it is an illusion
the way we go.

The hill behind the barn
reverses direction.
Going up is now coming down —
a small reorientation in the mind.

We walked on water
at the end of the drive.
Future, a map, undressed us
as for another part.

We remain. Standing now
on the western horizon
sloping off
fall leaves all around.
