If She Wishes To Know

By: Kristin Garth

Fog encircles glass houses — also

ephebic brains. Between mist and bay, eyelids

remain less than half open but follow

vibrissae, suspended in air. Form hid

inside vapor, an invisible hare,

impossible to quantify height

although wide irises stare, high as a bear’s

upon hind legs contemplating a fight,

unblinking eyes, fur silver white as

twilight sky, hyacinth haze, shadow

of ear, shade of malaise makes its path

towards glass of a girl’s bedroom

who must decipher this riddle on tiptoe

into a darkness if she wishes to know.
