Deleted Scene

"(Deleted Scenes) From an untouched landscape #8," 2013, by James Tylor

Deleted Scene

The helicopter mosquitoed by overhead
and the cloud paddled back past it

and this is a deleted scene

It lifts its head above the water
and then resubmerges

Many memories go the way of the ripple
Any recalled thing gets retrieved from this pond

from wet sleep to the heaviness of air

What happens to breath that rests on a car window
What did the corner of the street smell like
All those figurines in the once-passed garage sale
Dopey and Doc and a dragon
were they welcomed back into the house after
sitting on the grass all day

Where is the home for what has left
