EDGELIT

             All day I have been walking

             in this woman's shadow

             looking for light.

 

Dream the invisible--

not the wavering

flame itself,

 

but  that aura of absolute darkness

at the light's edge--

the shadow

 

that stretches 

from the base of the heart,

that stands, unchanging,

 

in the slanting light.
