Maybe It Was The Fall

RDP Wednesday: Fumble

Painting By Remedios Varo


I was  strolling  across a smooth clear road

no cars to rush me along

but something caught my foot and I sprawled across the curb

and when I looked up I saw my shadow

racing ahead of me




laughing as it sailed away  from the Sun

I am sure that it what I heard.


Maybe it was the fall

and I was just confused

but sometimes when I’ m walking

and my shadow is at my heel

I hear that laugh again

of that I am absolutely  sure.
