the penumbra

let us imagine for a moment, hope

such a primitive vision
that makes the whole world beautiful

and in smaller, uglier moments
it makes the whole world scary

this shadow follows across all of creation

i step into the penumbra, wild with palms open

and then secretly look behind me
to see if my foot has made a mark
