My Shadow
Matthia. Age 16. Vernon, British Columbia
Originally published in May 2001--our very first issue! There were only twelve pieces from young writers in our inaugural issue, so it was plumped up with some puzzles.
                      My shadow sits by me,
on my bed,
carefully unattaching itself
from my skin.
Unattached
it watches me.
Then,
off it floats
to catch a dream
and slip through
the cracks in my mind,
so I can see it, too.
