I am taller if you stand in my shadow

If you asked me how I’m doing

I’d tell you about my past:

The bits and pieces, brick and mortar

That built me into who I am now

In the present, oversharing

Under appreciating.

Because my body is stone

Grounded in the shadow of tomorrow

Because my mind is air

And my center is hollow

Because gravity tells me to sit still

A monolith eroded by the wakes of


I am emanating, irreverent

Falling in line on the concrete

Where I’m centered in place

Yet the wind sounds

Nothing like silence
