Cinder 136

Wakes, walks to the window, inches
from the pane, breathes out, long breath
bearing its mist, mist appears, pale,
first finger writes a name, stares at,
sees through same to the world below,
world it forms, figures, as the name
fades from the pane, breathes in again,
inches away from the window,
world remains, other world remains
