The Shadow

the spirit runs the gauntlet a shopper going from store to store, seeking the bargain seeking

the rest seeking a little more, the shadow follows watches the trail the stop the start the worry, can we afford this is this all there is there has to be more, a cafe a rest a cup of coffee a chat and some comfort, a friend sits down it smiles the energy is strong no fear around, at last, the spirit takes a deep breath and the offer of a cigarette, i’m met a like soul in the shopping mall of fear and anxiety, no shadows only light, remind you of a Leonard Cohen song i imagine. lets hope he keeps on producing the light, amen.
