Which Are Still Reflective In Me

by Philip F De Pinto

Trying to make some moot point
You punch a hole in the screen
Through which a fly flies through
And you - in the direction opposite to the fly

He entering - you exiting - you angel
Who were all the buzz
Before the fly flew in
Who were to vanish from the scene
To venture off to who knows where?

Perhaps become a face
Reflective upon some lake
And what a seraphic face to reflect upon such
And how fortunate of the lake
Weary of reflecting and entertaining
Such features as are privy to a sky
With that singular blinding eye

And what will I do to entertain a fly?
When I would have much preferred
Be in league with your own blinding features
To heap upon such things
Which are still reflective in me

A fascinating exchange of characters in this piece, Philip. "And what will I do to entertain a fly?" - this line really tickles me. One would hope the angel returns.
