This was a phrase exercise from Zelda's. Original phrase: "It was so bright, I couldn't see it."


Does it wait like a frame
Without a picture
Hiding in future tenses -

Lying in tall grass by
The waterholes of your life,
Charging beautifully to
Meet you?

Does it hang, hunger-heavy
Like a humid day, clinging
To your shadow, following you
To the fields and back in the house?

When you sit down is it under your chair?

It is too bright to see,
Too loud to hear,
Too sharp to feel.
