the palm of your hand.

and I asked my shadow

——————- * ——————-

what do you see
when the lights go out
what do you hear
in the dead of night
what do you do
when I am sleeping

what do you say
when no one believes
what do you feel
when nobody cares
what do you want
what are you thinking

do you play with other shadows
follow the leader
hide and seek
do you sing and dance
or have a job
or go to school
and study and read
is there a secret lover lurking in the … trees

what would you do
if I didn’t get up
if I died tonight
and left this life
what would you be
my shadow self, without me
