Exposed

by Nicholas John Street
this light exerts a gentle pressure
a washing without waves
that erodes the refuge of stone

and I would seek cover if I could
but there are no shadows
all directions are high noon

and he who would hide squirms
seeks any kind of drunkeness
to escape this terrible sobriety

and he who would be naked
surrenders his secrets to the eye
of Him who already knows them
