The Eye of The Whale
Poetry by Paulette Callen


I looked into the eye of the whale
and saw the person looking back at me,
and she said to me,
"You are witness.
You cannot now turn away,"
nor could I.
Cords of light --
cords of steel
bind me to her
for all time
and wherever I am,
and wherever she is
they are my burden.
They are my joy.
