Retraction

–mickey morgan

The shade retracts. Morning light enters the window hole skimming bare arms, slipping

over loose breasts, softening the night face as a curved palm touches the shoulder of fear,

sluicing the deep brown coverlet, it is sloughed, then scattered. The body is redeemed,

receiving the light.
