After She Told Her Story

After she bravely told her searing story of
incurring persistent childhood sexual assault,
she stood under a waterfall in the cool, tumbl-

she ascended to the top of the canyon and joined
her friends. As she stood in the bright, desert
light of day he wondered how he possibly could
stand in her shadow.
