Broken Shadow

Broken Shadow

W. Jude Aher

To laugh, to cry all for no reason. Can be amusing! My legal wedding (for the insurance) barely survived my fits of laughter. Due not to my wife but due to an overly out of touch justice of the peace.

broken shadow

i cry

i cry for nothing

i cry for

a tv commercial

an old movie

seen often

(tears from a man

who had not shed a tear

since the boy grew past the child)

i don’t cry for


that i cry

it is delusion

sweet multiple sclerosis

it offers one

its empty seasons

just a long dance

tired without reason

broken shadow

on a wall

carve me a river

mirror mirror

catch my fall
