Chihuly's slant

Chihuly's slant

his glassworks 
of enflaming color
do not display as
central balance..
vertical symmetry
reserved for more
sturdy times..
we might ask
is truth best told
as slant
 Emily so in-formed..
the creation we muse
is always slant
slant color shading light.. 
for without color
beauty fades...

Tell all the truth but tell it slant —
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth's superb surprise
As Lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind —
Emily Dickinson
