* Shadow

The Emperor, despise
his shadow, ’cause his and commoners’
are the same.

Commoners, abhor
their shadows. ’cause being stepped on
is no fun.

Somebody has no shadow
so he was stoned to death by others
they believe he must be a ghost
only ghost has no shadow.

why not be a ghost?
no more being stoned to death by others.

why not be a ghost?
no more frightened by shadow yourself

on the wall, two shadows
stacking up against one another
is it lover and hater, kissing
that missing shadow of a ghost?
