Cat’s Eye

I am a collection of cat’s-eye neurons
Nothing firing off in any direction
Soaking up light and reflecting it
When it comes from the right angle

When the lights come back on
I don’t know what the residents will make of it
Pale bodies dropping out of windows
In their blinded confusion

I’ll sweep up the mess of broken glass
Like I do every few years

Bridget Flack
