From Barbara Nickel:

April 30, 2016

… Inside us is the vastest

stretch of anything I can’t describe –

… Is Christ in it, I’ve asked, and think perhaps, where shallow’s

deep; our navel crowns His dome; a kiss

sets off an earthquake in the smallest hall

and in is out, in prison is release.

The rooster crows. I’m buttoning my dress,

kneeling for lauds, confess, confess, confess …

– From Anchoress, from The Malahat Review, Issue 194
