Glint (a fragment)

A glint of light – as though a lone beam had drilled a crack far above. The rock, the gravel, the sand. A matte wall of rock, reaching over and above and behind, beyond perceptive reality. The light shines on a moment of glistening quartz. Time loses its bearings here, stumbles drunk cross the room to collapse in an exhausted pile, a memorial cairn.

The pool shifts with impossible tides. Eyeless, insectile forms skip on the waves, soon disappearing behind a curtain of solid darkness. Here we stand, holding hands, lost but not alone.
