every day   I leave my conscience
there   in order to be   here
 
night and day   I leave what I know is
wrong   outside   over there
above or below   the horizon
 
each morning and afternoon   I notice
 
 
flecks   cuts   and unexplained   light-glare
 
try to accept that   sea   and sky
can be   indistinguishable    even lush
for the eyes
 
but   the remembering   implores
        clarity
