Floating City I

James Abbott McNeil Whistler-The Doorway 1879/1880

This place has the shimmer of an illusory construct
Though rumour has it exists in actuality
The tales told suggest some impossible fable
Realised through masses of stone and marble
In certain lights disappearing, rendered invisible
Then when the mists disperse, dissipate, revealing,
Floating above the void,
Sinking into the abyss;
The Capital of Impermanence.
