Moving Shadows

Moving shadows are our goodbyes.

They come alive every time we depart,

and we can watch them dance around each other

as if in an awkward two-step of everything we didn’t say.

Each syllable lingers around the door and waits

for its dance partner to return-

unaware they will never be back.
