poem by nadA
photograph by lynn spinnato

the vandal has dropped his tools
on the plated ice of midnight pond
full frontal vulnerability
he’s looking for an escape hatch
a button to push
a trigger to pull
reacting
to déjà vu
he crooks his head towards the snap of a twig
and stares wide into the vacuum of night
palms open at his hips
perspiration quickens
not a shadow stirs
just a ghost of fictions past
