Shadows

Shadows short poem

Photo by Hamed Saber

Gossamer canal–
Gondolier into inky emptiness
Harried lights twinkling beyond.

Peristaltic whoosh
Ice mountain collapses
To intrusive echoes
From a world less traveled.

Nostrils cleared
Eyes wiped clean
Swaddled Into a mazel-trampled world.

The lackeys lay claim
To another
Borne into its roiling midst.

For the moment,
Blanketed in a warm breast–
The Indistinct being,
Extra- terrestrially washed
Surrounded by a smiling rictus-glued train
Gleeful until I piss
And they hold their hands up to avoid the spray.
Shrugged out of the shadows
Slapped into cognition.

Standing in your shadow This is all that I know A picture perfect family Don’t let anybody see Late at night its rising Dark yet oh so blinding Numb to the pain now The voices in my brain scowl Draw
