by Caroline Liberatore
Light, steadied. What might it mean for no shadow to touch? I’m perforated, blink, and shadow shifts the coloring, concaving to ruinous depths, each rise and set. Cycles of duplicity eclipsed by integrity leave me withered in wake of a judge. How battered I’ve become in my reflecting— what bliss would it be for no shadow to touch? Father of Lights, could Your placid beams kiss even my darkest craters unraveling the criss-crossed seams of this double-hearted doubter?
