Exhaustion, after Saadi Youssef

A shadow never falls
Not at your feet

Not in the corner of the room
Not from the trees

Not between the towers
In the narrow cities

Never at noon
A shadow is always a lighter

Version of whatever light
An interference pattern

Reminding everyone
Light travels light

Is always traveling
And not all the light

Makes it back from reflection
Light travels until it gets absorbed

And interrupted
By fascinating digressions

Like you there standing in it
With your shadow that’s the light

The light left after you
That went around you

To stop at something else
To sink down somewhere else
