To the Untrained Eye
Sasha Fagelman, '24

I hide behind a red brick wall,
Slink out of your gaze,
I jump into the shadows of the moon’s passing phase.

I crawl into the gutters,
A leaf drifting with the rain,
I climb up trees, and in their branches, I hang.

I fly off with the bluebirds,
Dart around the clouds,
You can’t see me, I’m not here, just somewhere around.
