the teperature of your shadow

ive been a thin, wafer of drab
sewn to your heels for years
bloodless - on my back.

you have dragged me across borders
across snow
through mud puddles

your shadow-
a shadow of myself,
cast to the pavement
to lie at your feet.

and you wonder why i left you behind...
