for audre lorde.

28 Feb

her eyes
are bigger
than most of ours.
of both sky, and sea.
watching
from a distance,
a wide gaze.
yet never
without
intimacy.
of it, and
at once
an arm’s length
from it.
and maybe
that’s why she moves
so sharply
in the dark.
maybe
she just knows.
or maybe
it is that
she feels
it all.
still,
even with
her eyes closed.
