shadows and stars

What would happen
to little children
if their shadows
became more alive
more magnificent
than they could ever be
we would follow
shadows of ourselves
dark ghosts
reminding us
that we could be so much better
so much bigger
Sticky stuck to the pavement
hot and bland
what would happen
if we realized that we
were never very good and strong
maybe we would sail the high sea
just to see something starry
and bright bright
brighter than the dark
