“Draw the curtains” she said,
“the windows aren’t our allies”.
But I laughed at her
and poured a second cup of tea.

“What?” I asked,
“would you swallow up the view
just to block a pane’s gaze?

or curse the glass for cutting.
Poor guard that cannot glimpse itself
nor comprehend transparency
stands blank, a silent filter to beauty
that will not stay but passes through.”
