The Hegira (Vanishings opens 6/5/09 @ Imagebox)

Prison walls
Are fading
Into the ether.

The yard
Is barren
Of ghosts

And
Inmates.

It’s been
Centuries

Since
The
Others
Visited,

But
I’ve
Stayed

To
Watch the
Shadows
On the wall.

I’ve always
Known

That if I
Stared
At them
Long enough

From
Between my eyes,

And
Met their illusion
With my own
Reflection,

I could
Release them
Forever,

And they’d
Be free
To join the light

As I left
For a better
Place.

Now

This is
What
I’ve found.-

Departing
Can be
Frightening,

And yet

Necessary
To continue
Our

Journey.
