Layers of reference

If a perfectly painted elephant

Were painted to blend

Exactly as the eye saw it

Against the background

Of a room, or outdoors;

Anywhere

One would say the elephant didn’t exist

If camouflaged exactly so

What if the opposite could also be done?

What if there were empty spaces

Camouflaged inversely

In the background

In a room, or outdoors;

Anywhere,

Within our existence

Disguised as the background

That we knew nothing about

What are these spaces then?
