Shadow{s}

Shadow{s} are all around us…

The shadows of the attack of birds as seen on your grandmother’s sidewalk

The shadows of your excessively giant friends on the school courtyard

The shadows of the white picket fences against the newly paved street

The shadow of the rabbit ears in your fourth grade class…

courtesy of your grade school crush

The shadow of your grandfather’s cement work boots against the house 

The shadow of Sutro Tower against the San Francisco fog

 

Your shadow as seen from my driver’s side mirror… 

as you walked away from our future together

The one shadow I to this day wish I never would have seen
