What is vulnerability? Does it
take a criminal to spot it?
There is some sort of materialism
required, because the dead are fearless.
Through a curtain-less window
an undressed child's face
is caught by light in such a way,
more translucent than sun,
more innocent, available.
In the heart of a child, there
are no shadows. No black or white
or grey just heat and flames.
Like summer on a clear blue day.
