The eye is the first circle; the horizon which it forms is the second; and throughout nature this primary figure is repeated without end.

-Emerson, Circles

I cannot focus

enough to see

the edges; nor trace

the slow bend in

the periphery,


vanishing point.

I step forward,

then back ; turn circles,

almost a dance;

it comes no nearer
