Sculpting Darkness

by Adele DeWitt

forcing a pattern into horror
giving it a stamp of identity

terror is specific, an
oh God no
of the worst fear

darkness can be shaped
by words, by hands

the darkness we slam up against knows us
it has reached into our minds
and works against us

it brooks no frustration but is insistent
I am yours it cries
feel it
