TC: Divine Dancers

for Edwin Denby

“The angels standing
two or three feet away
Edwin said

The Great Ones
when they sweep
across our sphere
of the universe

in a state of
presque vu --
almost seen

in the phantom
of a curtain
stirred by no breeze --

behind a screen
waiting there
to manifest themselves
