Matthew Catalano // FLASHLIGHT

What is this odd device?

Push the knob,

A radiant light rockets out of the end,

Like a bright beacon of courage;

Illuminating tiny pieces of dust.


It sees the unseen,

Revealing that which was once in the dark.

Aim it anywhere,

And “anywhere” will bask in its glow.



It will manipulate the shadows,

Or eliminate them completely,

To blaze a trail through what was once dark.
