What These Senses Can Do

by Richard Louis Ray

 

I started in the middle of time

and grew backward to the beginning

and forward to the end. Sometimes

the sides switch around and I feel

like I’ve already stood where I’m

stepping. Maybe I have, and that’s

why the cattails seem so familiar,

windswept over the orange-painted

sand. Or maybe I’m confused,

colorblind, forgetful, and the sunset’s

playing tricks on me. Maybe that’s

nonsense. Maybe the old dog’s

a fallacy and the trick is to keep

learning and I for one am still

learning what these senses can do.
