My Shadow

My shadow performed angular acrobatics,
As if music hall performer in Nineteenth-Century Paris.
 

I asked my shadow, "Why are you wearing a top hat,
Making those absurd gestures?"
 

My shadow said, "I'm the only thing that has been close
To you all your life, and I hate to see you so sad.  So I decided to entertain."
 

Entertain, I said to myself, even my shadow does not understand me.
Suddenly, I realized my shadow understood me better than I understood myself.
