"A Pane of Glass in the Grass"

standing vertical

shoved into the grass

one-third below eye level

below the dirt horizon

two-thirds above

in air

three dimensions

looking two

you should walk around it

this side and that

ignore the thin edges the third dimension

and focus on the two

what do they say

do they speak in their own accent

do their very words

their merest syllables

speak uniquely

using vowels consonants no one else has ever used

or do they use a common currency

notes and coins rubbed dull by so many fingers

that they barely can express

this clear
