Each Goodnight

Every night there were two,
one and one refilled
life and soul
the chorus of touch
kept open
held close]

That Strange Resolve

erasure_yeahwrite

[Image: page 13 of “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Bronte. Most of the text has been blacked out. The remainder reads:

I resisted the new strength
of myself,
that strange resolve

shame! How is he my master?

my impulse
must break

she loosened her folded arms,
dark and incredulous

She never did so before]
