Me and My Shadow for d’Verse

Published May 4, 2017 by Nan Mykel

Watch Out! My Shadow’s on the loose

with beaked visage, dressed in puce.

He’s up to no good, I can tell

trailing his embers straight from hell.

 

Rude, uncouth, he throws a fit,

replacing niceness with a snit.

He gets like that from time to time,

just when my life is too sublime.

 

They say that I should chat with him–

admit he springs from my own whim.

But what if he enlists me too

and I become a scary shrew?

 

What’s worse they say that he’s a she–

“if I’m a she then he’s like me!”

No way! I know that it’s a him.

Thinking female would be too grim.

 

I never thought that this offender

would ever be a transgender!

Oh heck, I’ll claim him for my own,

despite bad seeds that it has sown.

 

If he is me then I can stay

his acting out this very day!

I’ll say not he or she but we

and end this Shadow fricasee.
