The Theory of Electromagnetism

The Theory of Electromagnetism

 You see fog and a long commute and I
 see water towers climbing skyward
 and disappearing. You see a tree
               missing most of its leaves
 and I see a birch
               adorned by blackbirds.
 You see power lines
 and I see twilight clinging to itself.
 You see a cardinal and call it
 a representative and I say visitant
 and eventually we agree on angel.
