A Confirmation of Spatial Orientation in a Physical World

By Joshua McDermott

The silhouette
transduction: I
experienced the
real thing, which laid
like a bird over
the snow, imprinted
in my brain:
you wearing glasses
and a sweater and shy eyes,
my perceived world
no bigger than a
fingernail: you kissed
me and I knew
the lights were on
and that I wouldn’t have to
guess anymore.
