Thursday Muse

Slim Devil

Shadow
glides silent
upon the floor,
rises and rides walls,
ripples across grass.

This spare slice of form,
faceless outline
of action and repose,
is ever ruled by light

yet invested with
tokens of mystery,
blood and hell.
Dark murder lies within.

We pour power and portents
into
even the thinnest thing.
