I spent weeks wondering who
you are. The domino days
have struck in toppling distance.
We are skipping on our own ideas
Two players: the self and the shadow,
an off-board game of Hot Lava.
I never know where to land
when I can see us both
–in you or near you?
Duality of self is curious; I find
me on the mosquito side
of the wooden screen door.
I watch myself drawing identity
–that four syllable path to the soul
piece–from the basket of the unclothed
mind. Shadows and worries
danced in the lily-bright
fields of the wedge-wheel sun.
