Mirage Oases By Kay Ryan

 

First among places
susceptible to trespass
are mirage oases.
.
Whose graduated pools
and shaded grasses, palms
and speckled fishes give
before the lightest pressure
and are wrecked.
.
For they live
only in the kingdom
of suspended wishes.
.
Thrives only at out pleasure
checked.
