discovering shade

discovering shade

discovering shade   

so many times you’ve
heralded your faults and follies—
the untamed  man’s world of peace
offerings paid with humble humor—

you see that porcelain dancer?
her gaze adrift while stroking
your achilles’ heel? she beats
your heart every time; oh, but it is nothing
you say with clever enchantment.

and I am so far away from where this night began.
