What can I put that won’t follow
or stick: to the white
we rely on for whiteness, for dawn:
what we must. The sun
to blind us enough, to help us go on.
It’s always: in motion
the question burning its mark as
it goes: what are these
words. What is their relationship
to light. What do I even
remember about my life. I open
a book at night: copy a line
again. It copies my tone: dares me
that white on its face
demands: that I write it, that I
too come undone
While we have you...
...we need your help. You might have noticed the absence of paywalls at Boston Review. We are committed to staying free for all our readers. Now we are going one step further to become completely ad-free. This means you will always be able to read us without roadblocks or barriers to entry. It also means that we count on you, our readers, for support. If you like what you read here, help us keep it free for everyone by making a donation. No amount is too small. You will be helping us cultivate a public sphere that honors pluralism of thought for a diverse and discerning public.
