meditation in lead

The beginning: white paper –

a rectangle of everywhere light,

a thumbnail of summer’s bleached sky.

After careful work

scattered graphite shadows

amorphous as breath on cold windows

annotate the page.

These jumbled greys

cooperate / frame

the paper’s light until

from a catalogue of darknesses

emerges a fluffy white dog
