Shadow?
Mask changer,
character after character
in the play-
not villains, though
the audience holds its breath
still
with each entrance-
I believed the acting.
I could not name you,
too caught in shifting storylines
until
moving to the back of the theatre,
when the stage became a stage,
and you! I saw
you wear the same shoes
with every performance..
Shadow?
Lithe one,
Let’s dance…
