RDP Wednesday: Fumble
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.
