I’m sure you’ve never heard of a shadow
behaving intelligently
though they love to appear
in deep thought!
They peep out when they ought not to
curiously caress people
make worlds seem darker
and rush over words without reading a bit!
Now what I don’t like a bit
about shadows is that they’re never
Or that they’re still
going yada yada yada over nothing
or getting intimidated by nothings!
They’re never sane.
They’re never still.
