poetry by j matthew waters

man is but a shadow

it’s 7:17 pm
and if I wanted to
I could find my own shadow

as for now
I’m content staying homebound
where I sit & wonder
where my shadow could be

in a perfect world
your shadow never leaves your side
omnipresent like god herself
who will one day
add yours to her collection

april two thousand twenty-one
