Pattern Recognition by William C. Burns, Jr.
published in Volume 5, Issue 4 on December 1st, 1998

Tell me what you think
you see
And I'll tell you
what is really there

To you
a dust devil
But can you see it
The thing inside
A whorl of eyes and fingers
and hearts

To you
a cloud
But look
just at the edge
A wind shark
Feeding on rainbow seeds

A tree
Covered with veins and arteries
Tiny coagulated clumps of luminous life parna
Breaking off
Snaking up the trunk
Heading for the leaves
