Syringe Shaped Shadow

Avatar Author: Tad Winslow "If you don't work nothing will." Maya Angelou Read Bio

A screen of digital text reflects

manufactured trees bleached and pressed,

without the mess,

typed and sent in an instant

(sunlight made the night undress.)

Each time we leave we leave an imprint.

(Dawn broke like an envelope
this
orange morning’s
soaring fringe
of skylines
& oceans

& pouring rain

forming

syringe
shaped
shadow

patterns on the window pane.)

    The shape looks like the dad from Phineas and Ferb. Or I watch too much children’s television.

    Bit of a choppy rhythm to my read, but still effective.

    haha, my niece watches that show, among many others. I feel your pain.
