pour through me
a vial of moment’s pause
filtration
a tarnished beam of truth
which nuanced,
arrives home at last

  7. A pause doesn't seem like much to ask--but the word "vial" in there has an ominous sound. We have to check the ingredients of truth carefully ... nuance may do the trick. Nice and spare Poem.
