or a raven’s stare,
it was all interchangeable
once her shadows were bare.

No reaching for the stars,
but instead stealing their brightness,
it was as easy as writing on ivory
—with darkness.

When the twilight within was cast aside
there were cloaks of light and none,
spun in contrast,
or mixed as shadow beneath the sun.
