The Window Is Not A Window – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“Art is not a reflection of reality, it is the reality of a reflection.” Jean-Luc Goddard

The Window Is Not A Window

When the window is not a window
but, in fact a mirror,
though not a mirror;
I see reflections, and yet,
in the same moment,
I can see through while
seeing everything reflected.

Don't tell me about the physics,
I know the physics,
it's not that (even though it is that),
what captures me is the overlay,
there I am superimposed
with the sunset, the garden,
I am sitting with trees,
I am flying in clouds,
everything all at once.
