The Worm Shadow

Woe to you, oh Earth and Sea,
for the Devil sends the beast with wrath,
because he knows the time is short…
– Revelations 12:12

I threw my shadow over you, and it was dark, senseless and hidden.
It was also your shadow in that chamber, mysterious and rebel;
far sometimes, but never quiet.

Your eyes were shut and your arms were awake, waiting for the
fall of my shadows as the leaves danced in the cold extraneous darkness.

I threw my shadows over you, like the worm, like the worm of shadow.
