Veiled Views

Monument Valley, Utah, USA 1997 André Thijssen


Jessica Elsaesser, from her series Oddments

How a passing
Leaves you
Bleached by it,
A white tree
Among the others
As though this
Were not the
Taking of something
From you,
But a mark,
One that spreads
Abating what you were
Before replacing you,
Your memories like
Petrified wood that
Has been stone
So very long.
