To Carve a Day

by Marcin Malek

So... I've answered
Despite no questiont was raised
My name is the last and te first
I'm the wolf and the lamb
Entrapped within a same shape
My shadow plays
Never-ending game
With light sharp enough
To carve a shiniest day
Of solid night
I've answered the question
And the question
Yet remains
