Retractile Lights

by Luminita Suse

There are women that love
and allow to be loved
once only

The sun within their eyes
never changes its

They panic and fold back
like oysters
when intensely looked at

There will be no second time
where the first deception
is sovereign

These women permanently
wear elusive shadows
on their faces

Thus few have the chance
to glimmer there
