a deeper blood copper

this glass was transparent
once

this glass was almost not there;
so clean you couldn’t even see it,
and the light that came through –
it was pure
like gold trapped in air

now the surface is grey streaked
from lack of attention
and what streams in now
is a deeper blood copper
casting sunset shadows
across a foot worn floor
