Eclipse of Lines

Eclipse of Lines

We must think of lines on purpose,
  although bees, geese and spiders
    inherit the elementary idea.
Let’s set a time limit of…say…
  span of a solar eclipse   
    from beginning until end…
      for imposed lines everywhere 
        to disappear, then reappear.
Children playing tic-tac-toe
  would rub and blink their eyes
    amazed that their boundaries disappeared. 
Athletes playing basketball or baseball,
  ice-hockey, soccer, tennis, football…
    could erupt into anarchy.
  could dare to dream that conflict lines…
Well…in a “Get serious!” world
  mere thought of boundary lines eclipse is impish,
    for lines have a power like the force of gravity.
