#Poem distant sky

Outside, the walls are distant sky

Over the park
a line of trees, 300 yards away

In town, flanked by buildings
the street is long
a vanishing point

You spread out
feel what you’ve been containing
register
within the context of a shared public space
the impermanence and comparative intensity
then all the mechanisms kick in

You measure the angle of the sun
calculate what will be
let yourself watch the theatre

Your role clicks into place
like it or not
