It May Happen

as though it doesn't matter what is real

<i> " . . . something almost . . . with asking."
—Brenda Hillman</I>

According to their signs we're in the country
Far off things are being put on the record
Where it may not matter to anyone
If the shadows hide themselves behind rain

[Hata Bildir]
