The Difference Between Knowing

the difference between knowing

the difference between knowing
something is within
reach and not reaching out
and knowing something
is no longer
reachable is like suddenly
losing wings
in the middle of the night
and finding the only
gap in the nightmare
already occupied by
a whimpering seven-
year-old who knows
there is no one on the
outside to hear her
