The opening (read: aperture)
is open by design (read: default),
so susceptible to departure
with the brain floating, bag of salt,
loud, malleable light, the sky profuse
in its movement from rim to vault,
an orb (read: void) open to obtuse
approach from any outer corridor
(read: vector), as if angle could produce
what sight announces as visitor,
a gravity-infected flash, or fleck,
that, focused, becomes meteor,
the surface less limit than wreck,
the eye a crash site, open to air,
onto a sky that will not reflect.
