just above


By Mike O’Connell
i saw a shadow
walking down the way
looking for a form
left behind
when a cloud whisked by

finding no purchase
on hot asphalt
it wavered(dangerously)
just above the road
confused looking without
eyes for a shape to fill
mastered flesh no longer
holding sway
it turns to see(without eyes)
others following shades
parading toward destinations
of darkness
no longer needing light to be
