the apparent flow of things

the apparent flow of things is only the passing through the mirror
without touching the silver on its back.
between us there’s so much emptiness,
and we wonder,
as if that would be the ultimate test to resolve.
sometimes though
our ears shelter
a cryogenic hissing of violins
looking for a higher sense of pain
and then we stop from the peaceful war of our passing,
trying to remember, for a moment,
the future –
when the harvest of sounds will have placed
on each of the lines of our palms
its tender silence
