Atlantis

After Map of Broken Glass (Atlantis)  
                    —Robert Smithson, Dia:Beacon, N.Y.

Shimmering glass fragments fall
against each other, rise from the smooth
floor like blue-green mountains    

heaped into the outline of an island
hidden beneath an ocean. Atlantis:
longing dreamed  into memory.

Yet who could have guessed?
Beside the glistening mound  
for an instant I almost believed.
 
Tonight, in a closed gallery,
an imagined world will drown again
in a lake of trembling air  

while above Atlantis, Leonids  
streak the net of gridded windows          
in a stuttered falling,

breaking the night
into gone  
    and gone.
