(Greenwich Meridian, Greenwich, England, July 1987)
the line that divides
what is seen or unseen;
the demarcation between east and west.
imaginary or arbitrary
as line that wedges between edges;
as border between countries and counties.
indiscernible or distinguishable
as line dividing the globe into time zones;
splitting sphere into hemispheres;
atmosphere into ionosphere and stratosphere.
line invisible becoming visible
as imaging of images
unfolds into shades and shapes.
imperceptible and intangible
as line between depth and breadth;
between sanity and insanity;
between love and hate.
substantial or insubstantial,
as the line between
life and death.
something and anything
is a line.
