Today's poem is by Mary Ann Samyn

Clarity, 1.2

—Considering The Despair of St. Thomas.

                                                                                                                  (Tame it.)

—Considering Lion and Cage: wire, yarn, etc.

If you don't know a word, you should look it up:
translucence is one thing; transparency, further down.

How much do you shine through?

                                                                                                                  (why O why)

This is my face: frequently human.

                                                                                                                  This is the line for joy.
