Emily Dickinson - The Lightning is a yellow Fork

The Lightning is a yellow Fork
From Tables in the sky
By inadvertent fingers dropt
The awful Cutlery

Of mansions never quite disclosed
And never quite concealed
The Apparatus of the Dark
To ignorance revealed.

The Lightning is a Yellow Fork -E. Dickinson

Her poem is her pointing right
at flashing mental lightning,
as she herself makes light of light
to give her mind a quietning.
