The Shade of Shadows

We stand in the shadow of a concrete god

A roaring, rampant, rumbling beast of vehicular worship

Where people pass at speeds to fear contained

By barriers of that selfsame indestructibility

Yet beneath the behemoth, where its shadow

Lightly tickles the chopping waters so filled with fish

And walkers wonder at what occurs unseen

Both above in the aether and below the waves

Somehow stuck in that world of semi-darkness

Neither part of one nor the other until the sun chooses

To adjust celestial alignments and warm their souls

Which by then, they won’t be wondering

Just seeking the shade of shadows again
