Illusions

and then the opposite happens
taking away the consistency
no matter how many times
you’ve experienced the same.

It’s that undercurrent
sweeping up the sand on a riverbed
or in shallows near shore
displacing it
giving the false impression
of continuation
of safety.

Drawing the eager traveler
with the promise of comfort
and familiarity
and safety
along a line
that couldn’t be more
unpredictable.
