Excerpt


Shadow The shadow of Naples
The shadow of stanzas waiting
The shadow of daylight is absence
The shadow of a mother includes another
The shadow of chaos is order
The shadow of the hawk is the robin
The piano's shadow is a cape
The cape's shadow is a woman
The shadow of one dream is another dream
The shadow within a dream is infinite
The shadow of a boat is an anchor
The shadow of regret is tragedy
The shadow of love is loss
Oh my! The shadow is back and is waiting
The shadow of paint is only paint
The shadow of rain is wetness unto itself
The shadow of morning is lean
Come back, shadow of my youth
Shadow me, and tell me where I've been
Come back, warm shadows of the Sundays of my youth
Even the brightest poem is haunted by shadows
The shadow of the mother, the shadow of the father
Shadows are robes the sun keeps dropping
Come back, lost shadows, syllables of midnight
To plead for a shadow is to plead for mercy
