A shadow dances for 5 minutes:
He tells me that the moon itself
has a heart;
no one has ever seen it.
The shadow unzips the moon’s jacket
and in it – a pounding heart is beating.
A shadow dances again for 5 minutes:
He shows me how he can swim in the sun.
So he swims in the heat of the inferno pond.
A shadow dances for the last 5 minutes:
The shadow starts decaying rapidly –
it screams pain, tears shedding moths.
He shows me the wounds of earth.
Bruised, cuts, & bullet holes,
earth opens its own skull –
Behold! – The colony of plastic humans destroying one another.
The poem you are all reading – was based on a dream I had about the ‘Shadow man’.
The Shadow man was dancing in front of me, it was dancing with rhythm & style.
He spoke to me and told me a true story about the moon, sun, earth & Humanity.
This was probably one of the most beautiful & sad messages I had ever received from the shadow man. I hope you all can envision what I had seen in my own dream.
