The Enchanted Lake

Written By: David Dodd Lee

                                          (an Ashbery erasure poem)

Perceptive
to have thought
myopic
with stagnation
to be
invisible is
a swelling
beyond outlines
a falling beyond
options

You could
choose
darkness
asterisks
shaking
Distressed
images
you know
can never
fold out
of sight
