Maybe it’s a bat’s wingsat the corner of your eye, rightwhere the eyeball swivelsinto its pocket. But whenthe brown of your eye turnswhere you thought the white saw,there’s only air & gold light,reality—as your mother defined it—(milk/no milk). Not for yearsdid you learn the word longing,and only then did you see the bat—just the fringe of its wingsbeating, its back in a heavyblack cloak.

Maybe it’s a bat’s wings
at the corner of your eye, right
where the eyeball swivels
into its pocket. But when
the brown of your eye turns
where you thought the white saw,
there’s only air & gold light,
reality—as your mother defined it—(milk/no milk). Not for years
did you learn the word longing,
and only then did you see the bat—
just the fringe of its wings
beating, its back in a heavy
black cloak.
