Default stained glass


pretty vista it was, stretching to whatever horizon we pleased, reflecting us back to ourselves without the blink of an eye,

it did not, could not lie, we perceived.

I think of how we watched it, untinted, untainted, never dreaming, you or I,

that our breath could break it, that we were deceived.

Car accident? Blood staining the front window? A metaphor for what we perceive as reality is bound to deceive us eventually?
