When We Look by Annie Lighthart When we look long at one another, we soften, we relent, listen, might forgive. We allow for silence --and when we see each other, are known, and in that moment might change though nothing has moved or been spoken. There are some who say the walls cannot be broken, but suddenly we are in a free place, and the fields that extend from its center stretch for miles as if out of the pupil and the iris of that momentary kingdom. You can find this poem in Pax.
