Be Not Afraid of the Dark

Be Not Afraid of the Dark

Here we are at the beginning
once again in the river’s mouth

all doing the slow-waking walking dance
with our eyes open wider than wide.

Everywhere the dark is, there is its heart.
We’re awake—awake in the dark

where we hush, and may touch
and only gently move apart.
