Noelle Herceg

windows behind windows
veils, hidden and hiding
  protecting impressions
               (like the face of sweat, dirt. Tears.)
a shroud
that is not properly preserved
                  What would ‘proper preservation’ look like?
fixed and unfixed
peel your eyes to understand their wetness
an un-magic show, in that They will slowly fade
    and disappear
“fading before
the eyes of the nations assembled.”
