“Shadows,” by Kathryn MacDonald, a poem

Wear Dali’s time-melting /
watch

SHADOWS

When you slip    down
     go deep.

Wear Dali’s time-melting
watch     curl into dream

beyond shallow façades
     dig within night’s folds
the moon’s secrets

where phantom fingers journey
over skin     lips caress     until
encircled     two melt
lost until dawn

                           when light
routs shadows     and time
shoots through your chest.
