Last of questions

“...if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.”
    ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Could you see
There amongst the shadows
That darker stream
Of fleeting motion
Soundless as anomaly
Who’s watching
For what may be illusion
Trick of mind
Shapeless fluid
Groping as for strands
Ephemeral amidst chaos
Why not cast me
Substanceless as echo
Immutable in this moment
Already beyond reach
In time
In reversal of time
In lives replayed or reimagined
In acceptance
In twilight
What bonds need be loosened
Verging on drift
From what form
This vehicle yet bearing
Lengthening fur
Visceral predilections
Colloidal flows
Immaterial aches
No more to register
What meaning lies
What sound comes
What compulsion persists
What color reflects
The rollout
Toward the horizon
The becoming one
With this
With all
With void
Could you see
How slowly and utterly
I’m restored
To that still communion
Now so obvious
Why answer
