For the give and take between reality and dreams. In this poem, she is a mime, and it is an imagined glass. #amazonlink to The Best of It: New and Selected Poems by Kay Ryan (p.54). 


from "How Successful Can She Afford to Be?" / by Kay Ryan 


Would she be glad
if it left a ring,
if she could 
add to the manifest,
passing a thing
out of the dream?

from The Creation of the Moon / by Anonymous (Caxinua/Amazon)

So the head started to think what it would turn into.
If it turned into water they would drink it.
If it turned into earth they would walk on it.
If it turned into a house they would live on it.
If it turned into a steer they would kill it and eat it.
