Cockroach Lover

I trimmed the edges of your shadow,

trying to shape out its true form,

but you evaded my meticulous attention

like a cockroach

scurrying away from a hand-curled

magazine, your six-legged frenzy

left me disarrayed, dismayed and afraid.

.

I was growing tired

of the dire need

to imagine your expressions.
