Ekphrasis

Take it off the shelf

 Glass through glass

 Use a shovel

 dirt over where

 eyes used to be

 mounds still give them away—

 emptiness

 holes

 all it takes is some

 shine or

 enamoring blue ridges

 there is no such thing

 there is no such thing

 as evoked emotions

 we are only calling up

 the ghosts
