Letting In - Poem by RIC BASTASA

letting in light
i set aside the curtain
and tie it beside
the wall

i open the window
look outside
and decide to stay

there is no walk
that is too appeasing
my heart is bleeding

i am staying to lick
the wounds
like a lion losing its
recent battle

i have a shadow
and i am looking at it
haunted by its
i am reflecting where
the opening is
there must be an
exit somewhere
like light entering
a slit in darkness.
