I.

Arrogant egret
Shin deep in benevolence
Hope flickers beneath

Unaware of his color
Refracted on broken panes

His fifth attempt at the same shad
Nothing but water
Nothing but water

II.

Slate slab floor
Bizarre blindness returns
Fireflies spark above

Roosting on weary pilons
Unseen by fading eyes

Head sagging to chest
I see him
I see him
