I have not been charged for the closet that was
filled with birds,
silt, gloves, and the dullness of petals.

Yet my heart was clean from the very first.
My hands were ready
and opened like gifts.
In sleep, the sound of hours rushed
across the street to ravish me.

I have made light of many things
and that's why we can see in here.

-- Eileen G'Sell
