  • There Is No Shadow
  • Ruth Dropkin (bio)

There is no shadow in this photo:You and I are seated side by side,lapped by the waves of lightmade golden in the wash of sex,whose pulse buoysour girdling smilesshining into the camera.There is no shadow in this photoonly the bright startle of love. [End Page 86]

Ruth Dropkin

Ruth Dropkin was born and raised in East New York, Brooklyn; graduated from Brooklyn College (where she was editor of its literary magazine); and had a long career as an editorial freelancer. Her attachment to Jewish feminism grew from the example of her mother, Rebbetzin Esther Forsyth Warshavsky, as well as from the Yiddish poetry of Celia Dropkin, mother of her second husband, John. She is the great-grandmother of four.
