Shadow on the edge of nothing | Faint, almost translucent | Hints at body but has no | volume | Dependent on the light | yet itself | Palm | leaf | stirs in the breeze, fades | even further under cloud and | is helpless, and the sun | is helpless, too

Helpless clouds | cross the face of the sun | The definition of shadows | fades | We call out our names, and the names | hold us | and silence | holds the names

 


from the series fleeting pixel (series of 1,000 poems, 2012–2016)
