Bystander

At the wall
Shifting from heel to heel.
Shrinking to the back
Grounded in the greyed canvas.

A shape--
Form?
Daunted by light.

Shirking activity.
A course outline
Blackened for effect.

Superseded
until this long query
Seen slightly by one wary.

Amanda,

I love this poem. When I read it there was
a feeling of "the pen in my hand", so close
it was to something I might write. Thanks
for such a kin poem.

Eric

Thanks for the compliment. I like finding a level that someone else can relate to.
